a quick introduction

Welcome to Buckeye Chinchilla.
Buckeye Chinchilla has taken several years to get to the point that we are at today. We were introduced to chinchillas in 2015, attended our first chinchilla show in 2017 and that is when Ron's love of the biege mutation took root. Ron showed his first litter at the Southern Atlantic ECBC show in January 2018 and brought home our first Reserve Class Champion. In the spring of 2018 the breeding program grew by nearly 5 times the size that is was and in the fall of 2018 we purchased a chinchilla herd from another breeder. In late 2019 we began an expansion of our herd again and built a Chinchilla Annex that by February 2020 allowed us to double our herd with chinchillas from one of the top breeders in the country.

At the North Atlantic Branch ECBC show in November 2018 we came home with our first ever Standard Grand Show Champion and Standard Reserve Grand Show Champion, as well as, our first Mutation Grand Show Champion for a beiege that is now part of our breeding program. We take great pride in the quality of our animals, as well as, the continued development of our chichilla herd. Through out the 2019-2020 show season we began to seriously show the first of our Black Pearl kits that were born in early 2019. At both the North Atlantic and Great Lakes ECBC Branch Shows we can home with Class Champions and Reserve Class Champions with the Black Pearls that we showed. We also showed our first Angora through out the season and she took Class Champion at both the North Atlantic and Southern Atlantic ECBC Branch shows. We are working to improve the quality of these and all mutations in our herd.

Due to Covid-19 we did not attend any shows for the 2020-2021 show season.

Currently Ron serves as Secretary and Ryan serves as President of the Great Lakes Branch of ECBC.

Thank You for stopping by,
Ryan, Ron, and Jeffrey
