RDZC Ranch

RDZC Ranch RDZC Ranch has been in operation since 2001. I strive to provide healthy, happy, well socialized, hi RDZC Ranch was established in 2001.

I focus primarily on standard grey and black velvet chinchillas, but I do have a few breeders to produce white, pink white, violet, ebony, and Lowe's recessive white. Since I do not focus on these mutations, they are not often available for sale. Since starting in chinchillas, animals from my breeding have taken numerous high placing awards from reserve class champions through grand show champion.

My animals are selected based on quality, health, and often even temperament. All babies born here are handled from the moment they are born and are well socialized with people and other chinchillas. Any baby born here would make an excellent pet and many of the animals I grow out would make excellent, high quality breeding animals. Prices for animals will depend upon gender, age, and color and the starting price list can be found on our website at www.rdzcranch.com/for-sale

I am happy to help any new owner or breeder for chinchillas, but please keep in mind that breeding is not something to be taken lightly. I require that you be mentored for a minimum of five years by myself or another experienced, reputable breeder that I am well acquainted with if you choose to go down the path of breeding. Mentorship includes visits by me to inspect your setup and ensure proper safety of caging for mothers and babies and extensive talks on chinchilla health, anatomy, genetics, and breeding in which you are required to keep and maintain a notebook of important information. All of your chinchillas for breeding should be pedigreed and properly evaluated for health and quality by an expert breeder before being paired to produce babies. Just as with breeding any other animal, you are going to be responsible for bringing another animal into the world and this is not something to be taken lightly just to produce cute babies. We love to help new breeders and strongly encourage doing this as long as it is done properly. The average lifespan of a chinchilla is 10-15 years, so a commitment to a chinchilla as a pet or breeder is the same as it would be for a dog or a cat. These are rodents, but they are long lived with amazing personalities and deserve to have a lifelong home. Please consider this age range and their very specific temperature housing conditions before considering purchasing a chinchilla.

First show of the season was a huge success for everyone! So glad we got to see all our chinchilla family again and catch up with everyone! Exciting things are in store for all and our hard work continues to pay off. Congratulations to all the participants int he show!

I took 5 chinchillas to the show primarily due to lack of prep time since I was working my butt off getting this show going!

3yo Goldbar male - 1st place
Mosaic male - 2nd place
Beige male - Section Champion Beige Male
TOV Ebony (bred by Applewood Chinchillas ) - Reserve Section Champion Ebony Female
TOV Ebony (bred by Applewood Chinchillas) - 2nd place

The beige male was for sale, but Emma fell in love...so I guess I have to find space for him to be Emma's chinchilla out in the barn.

Facebook will not take this group down and it has like hundreds of fake accounts attached to it that spam breeder pages to try and bring people in. These are SCAMMERS and they will tell you they have any chinchilla and are located anywhere you need them to be...then they take a couple hundred dollars from people and disappear. I can't understand how people continue to get scammed out of their money by these people. Please find a real breeder...we type like actual humans and have sensical responses because it's a person behind a keyboard and not auto-generated responses. We have photos that are typically all in similar settings...you can tell our photos are from ONE location and not a bunch of different cage or whatever photos.

I HATE this group and they are using old photos of my nieces with their chinchillas to try and pretend they've sold chinchillas. If you have the time...join their group and spam "this is a scam" all over the darn group. Report the group...maybe facebook will finally take it down.

09/26/2023

I don't advertise it or really note it since I don't breed for it, but did you know our violet lines are also California White Tail? California White Tail is commonly misnamed as California Recessive White (CRW), Fading Whites, and many other strange combinations of recessive, white, fading, and/or California. The correct name for this assumed mutation is California White Tail. The original herd that discovered, identified, and named this mutation were some of our mentors, PSK (Pete and Sue Kiseskey). While they found the coloring interesting, the color was inconsistent and difficult to breed for or identify a genetic passage to offspring. Because of this, they could not confidently call this a recessive or dominant coat abnormality...so they decided not to add unproven genetic monikers to the name. Their ranch was based in Tehachapi, CA hence the California naming and the white tail naming was due to the first few fading whites developing most of their loss of coloration as a ring around the base of the tail.

Our violet lines all go back to the original PSK lines and most show some expression of fading throughout their lives. Pictured is the stud of our violets, Prince, who was born here in 2016 and is a standard violet carrier. His nose and rings around his ears and base of his tail have faded quite a bit over the years. A couple of his females are also fading at much younger ages.

Our recently weaned curly boy has a message for all these scamming spammers....kiss my butt.

Seriously...I appreciate the follows, shares and comments! Y'all have made us too popular now and the scammers are coming out in force. My bestie at ABC Chinchillas got hit with 5 in about a 30 minute time frame and I went through the process of deleting all the comments. Facebook...ever the helper of small pages...does not have a "ban and delete all comments" button. Instead, each comment has to be deleted individually and then we have to also ban the scam account from our pages. Since we are public pages, they usually just hop onto another of their scam accounts and go back and post all the same s**z again.

If you see comments from someone other than myself trying to sell you a chinchilla or get you to contact them...IT IS A SCAM! If they post a link to a "new" group they've started...DO NOT CLICK! It's also a scam. Don't give these people money, your information, or your time. I delete comments and ban these scammers as fast as I can, but I am the primary caregiver of two VERY busy toddlers and I do sleep and operate on normal hours. I'm not a robot that will instantaneously remove a scammer...so please just be patient or tell the scammer to eff right off in true Tink style with proper angry stink eye like they denied you your third treat of the day.

Someone tell my curlies to stop having the cutest babies ever...I literally cannot keep them all. 😭😭 P52 is a surprise little extra dark ebony curly male and just the cutest thing. Unfortunately I am going to have to make him adoptable because I have his two curly sisters here. I might be keeping this guy for next show season and then posting him on the website.

I came home from picking up the new chinchillas to a crime scene. My dust was all over the floor. I had my suspicions that a chinchilla might be on the loose...but obviously no clear evidence. What do we think internet detectives? I might have rodents...😲

Picked up some new babies and welcomed back some RDZC babies today. This girl is a gorgeous TOV ebony and will be grown out for show along with a few others. Excited to see how they develop!😍

**For those that don't show, even though these animals will be shown, they will have the breeder's brand and NOT the RDZC brand so I won't get breeder points for showing these animals. I will, however, get valuable feedback on how they can be used and benefit my breeding program for a better next generation! One of the many things reputable breeders do to continue improvement and ensure we provide the best quality, healthiest chinchilla for generations to come.

Our curlies just keep giving! These triplet beauties were born to one of my best pairings, two 800g+ curly carriers bred here. Their previous kits are also well over 800g so I'm excited to see how these three grow. Two girls and a boy! The heavily marked girl will likely curl more with age. πŸ₯°

The MCBA national show was fantastic this year! There were just over 300 animals there with quite a few exhibitors. I only showed 4 chinchillas and let my niece, Clara, show one more from my show string that she fell in love with. Everyone took 1st places with great comments except for one pink white male that took a 2nd for being down in color. Not a bad showing for not preparing for the national, but hopefully next year I can report back on other awards. This year was just about getting TO nationals again after a 3 year hiatus and seeing all of our chinchilla friends. It was great catching up and we came home with a full carrier of very nice animals to reinvigorate various lines of animals and hopefully get back into the swing of shows!

02/11/2023

Unfortunate news here today at RDZC. Our resident old lady, Janet, the hetero beige chinchilla that always looked like a fluffy mess has finally passed away from old age. While we didn't have Janet her entire life, she came in with a group of rescues at the ripe age of 17 and after assessing her clear signs of extreme aging, I chose not to make her adoptable and instead worked on making her comfortable here for her final years. She surpassed all my expectations and lived for another 3 years past her intake date! Janet was not the prettiest girl, but she had an amazing personality and was well loved here in her final years. Rest in peace, sweet Janet and thank you for always giving us a laugh when we visited the old bedraggled lady in the barn. You will be missed. πŸ–€πŸ–€πŸ–€

Nooo...πŸ₯²

So...no pictures to share, but we've started on P babies here. Fun fact! Some of my first show quality breeding animals purchased were P babies. My very first show quality baby born was an R baby. Crazy looking at my baby book and seeing I've come full circle.

Two breeding quality standard girls available.

RDZC M117 7/29/21 Medium dark female. Ready to go into breeding. She took a 1st place when shown in October, but she was out of condition so didn't go further. Very nice large, blocky female with good veiling. Sire is J19 which is my most prolific male and consistently produces 1st place and higher. Dam is J4 which is out of an older standard line of mine and very prolific, usually producing triplets. She would do well in a standard line, but could produce nicely for mosaic/pink white/white lines as well.

Light medium standard female. Good sized female with very very dense and strong fur and a good blocky build. I have several related females and they produce well (mom has anywhere from 3-5 babies regardless of what male she is paired to). Good color and out of Ritterspach and MABC lines.

Can deliver these girls to the CA state show on January 21st in Grass Valley, CA.

White ebony quasi curly male. Adequate sized, blocky male with good color. He took a 3rd place at the October show due primarily to lack of full body curl and a little bit down in color. His tail fur is completely curled and his belly and hind end curl when it's moist or he needs a dust bath. The rest of his fur is wavy when he needs a dust bath.

Going through my show line and will be taking photos and posting what is available throughout the next couple of weeks. Most of these animals have been shown and received 1st place at show. First up are some boys. If you are interested, please send me a message or email ([email protected]). **Edited to add: Delivery is available along the shown route on January 20 and 21st.

Dark standard male 10/5/21. Great color, very dense and blocky with good size and very good veiling. Would keep him, but his brother is identical and I decided to only hold one back for my breeding lines. His sire is a national ECBC 3rd best of show from CCHT. Great producing lines with really good density and great color. His belly is WHITE WHITE. An excellent addition to any standard, bv, or black pearl lines for improvement.

Pink white male 3/15/22. Good strong, straight fur with good color and he is very good size and nice and blocky for his age. If not purchased ahead of time, he will be part of my show string for MCBA nationals...so I don't mind holding onto this guy. Out of a very nice beige male from B & B Chinchillas and a mosaic female from Manalo Chinchillas. If he were female, he would absolutely be staying here. I have an older mosaic sister of his in breeding here as well

Mosaic male 3/27/22. This guy has the most fur of any of my mosaics. Extremely dense and strong straight fur. Very blue male that is big and blocky. If I were keeping a white male for breeding this year, this male would be my pick. I have an older sister in breeding here and his niece is being held back for my breeding lines, so I don't need to keep another related male. Sire is a 1st place pink white male from my lines and dam is a phase champion standard female from ABC Chinchillas.

Unforunately, I had to make the tough decision today to not attend the annual ECBC Northwest show in Baker City, OR. This is the first year I will miss and I hate it, but the safety of my family has to come first and I am just not comfortable making the 7 hour drive with a baby in tow.

Next show we plan to attend will be the California state show in January. Safe travels and good luck to all our friends still attending the show this weekend and see many of you in January!

Meet Paddle! This adorable little guy lost half his tail at birth due to being born breech, but he is doing phenomenally now at about 1.5 weeks old. The little paddle tail combined with his unruly curls makes him irresistible for snuggles. Thank goodness mom is one of my sweet girls and appreciates me snuggling him 50 times a day!🀣

Nothing like a mid-morning freak out and crazy effort to save a baby. I was taking feed out to the barn and noticed this guy in his mom's cage (was not expecting babies from her as her mate passed away about 3.5 months ago). He was stiff and quite honestly I thought I was going to pull out a dead baby. I opened the door and saw him gasp and immediately went to work reviving him. It took about 5 minutes of me heating him and giving him rubs until he got to this point and could clearly squeak and breathe easy. Another hour later and he can stand up wobbly and take a few steps after mom. He is a little underdeveloped based on his fur growth, especially on his belly. I'm not sure why mom did not clean him off as she is an experienced and good mom, but she is tending to him now. Fingers crossed I got there in time and this little guy makes it. Gave him a little boost to help him with energy so he can start nursing on mom.

I love watching this girl grow. She has had interesting patterns since she was born and while they have stayed similar since she was a baby, she has had a lot of changes to her coat.

Breeders get asked a lot "what will this baby look like when it's older" and this is one of the many cases where that question can be frustrating to answer. Mosaics can maintain a particular pattern their entire lives, but many of them will change slightly as they age. The mosaic color is expressed through the Wilson White gene, which is an autosomal dominant piebaldism gene. This gene can essentially turn off the melanocytes (melanin or pigment producing cells) throughout the body. In chinchillas and many animals with piebaldism, the pattern of white (melanocytes "off") and colored or patterned fur (melanocytes "on") is largely randomized with a few small exceptions of regularly seen patterns like a white diamond or blaze pattern on the forehead. The genes that control how the pattern expresses are mostly recessive and numerous and work in groups with and/or against each other. These recessive genes can also turn off or on throughout a chinchilla's lifespan depending on external stressors and events...this causes a lot of mosaics to "change" their patterns you see as they age. Because of all of these factors, it is nearly impossible to look at a newborn mosaic chinchilla and confidently tell someone what they will look like as an adult.

This little mosaic guy is just too cute! 😍😍 He will be available in October once he is weaned from mom.

This super sweet, chunky boy was being held back for my show string and breeding. He loves holding hands and getting scritches and is a big cuddler. The perfect chunky boy for someone to love on! I decided to keep a different male for the breeding spot I had in mind for this guy, so he is now available. He is a little over a year old and would be perfect for a first time owner or someone just looking for an oddly cuddly, snuggly, and sweet big fluffy boy. He is from our show lines, so he has a LOT of fluff to him and he feels like a super plushy chinchilla and he is very chonky.
