Perhaps, the selection of animals fit to fulfill this goal, one of the most important tasks to be decided by the breeder when organizing home farms. From its correct decision depends on many things: will you continue to engage in farming? as the fate of wildlife to you? how you spend the funds and what will get the profit? Etc.
People who have no practical skills in housing, feeding and caring for your Pets, we can recommend first to breed rabbits unpretentious and learn about their biology, and then to purchase predatory fur-bearing animals. It is much easier for the novice breeder, and practical experience you will gain faster. Rabbits unpretentious, they have a fairly limited need for care, they offer an undemanding to feed. At the same time the animals are sociable, easily adapt to humans and breed in captivity, they can be kept in a small cage or in battery cages under a shed outdoors. It is also important that rabbits are not dangerous, unlike predators, which need to constantly exercise caution in handling.
Foxes, Arctic foxes and other predators bred in fur farms, can be recommended to those who already have some practical experience. These mammals are well adapted to the new conditions, are hardy, require osobymi of contents during the breeding season (strong metal cage, more nursing care, etc.), unlike rabbits, muskrats and nutria. An experienced breeder is always attentive to animals in their behavior and appearance, understands what they need, and, skillfully using the biology and living conditions, often making great strides in breeding animals.

The desire to get a pet can strike at any age. And if the cats and dogs we all have a General idea, then smaller animals are often known only by the Windows of pet stores. Meanwhile, home-rodent – beast is almost perfect for apartment: movements limited to, stains, respectively, only in the cage, withdraw to walk is not necessary, it is possible to communicate the mood. But there are nuances in every decision, so let me propose the conclusions from our own limited experience.
Pet rodents and children
To make little animals for a small child can not be categorically. “A hamster for three year olds” is irresponsible and a crime against the child and against a living creature in a cage. Horror stories with swallowed by the hamsters appeared not on an empty place, and doctors-the vets can tell stories about “the child snapped hamster”. Do you really want to provide your baby with such memories?
To have a pet can and should, as soon as the child clearly will begin to grasp the concept that a living being can be hurt and offended and will distinguish the animal from toys. In this case, homemade pesto will become a true friend to the child and joy for the whole family, and is indispensable in the formation of a sense of responsibility. All children are different, but the age of five, must be to think this way.
So, the choice of rodent
Hamster, rabbit, Guinea pig, rat, chinchilla or degu? For those who have no clear preferences,will paint the main features of each animal that may affect the choice. Continue reading
There are people worse than dogs direct, sorry. People who want only their own interests and desires. Wanted – bought a dog, don’t like kicked out. Yes, better if put in a shelter or given to a neighbor who has mitigated the circumstances and possible consequences. But when you throw a helpless animal on the street with “stuff”, for example, judging by the fact that our Sweetheart (male Chinese crested, was found in overalls) no one is looking, he was sent to live outside in his jumpsuit. In General, clothed, shod the dog and get out. The height of cynicism. Probably, such people always were, are and will be. And there’s nothing you can do but submit another example.
Here is a recent case on PC – the woman gave the dog to a shelter. We successfully found him a home, loving owners. The dog’s name is BIM. Once after living in an apartment and the status of pet to the shelter, where a huge number of fellow sufferers, and workers do not have enough time for each, his nervous system has passed a stress and immunity falls. Only imagine, from the couch to move into the cell, albeit separate, but in a strange place, where everything is someone else’s! Fear and anguish read in his eyes. We took care of him as best I could. While he waited his happiness at PC, he was under a lot of stress, bad suffered castration, imagetable. BIM realized that he had been betrayed. Betrayed that he was ready to give life – favorite mistress.
Bike lucky – he stayed with us. Felt sorry for him and love a wonderful woman Irina. She came with her son and chose BIMCO and kitten Levu. A new family of BIM, faced with the decline of his health, left him in this period, but devoted a lot of his time, effort and money on the treatment of dogs. They returned Bike faith in man. And most importantly – life. Left on the PCB, Bhim has not survived. He just didn’t fight. But in Irina he saw and felt HIS man. Continue reading
