It is important to remember that Angoras can have large litters. Six- eight babies are not uncommon. Before breeding think carefully about what you would like to breed for, and where the potential babies will find good homes.

Surplus babies cannot be sold to pet shops for welfare reasons, and Angoras are NOT suitable as children’s pets. Take advice from a responsible breeder about compatible colours. Indiscriminate mixing of colours often results in Brown-Grey Angoras. It is always worth breeding exhibition quality stock as there will be more potential homes for the babies. It is important to make sure that any new owner of your babies is shown how to clip and groom, and understands the time and long term commitment needed to maintain the coat.
