Wow! I didn't expect so many responses, especially so quickly! Thank you everyone! I really appreciate it. I'll be putting some of the suggested
changes into the site over the next couple days!

I'll check it out! I already bought CoffeeCup, and am pretty happy with the results so far though. Also, since I had to Google search for the
definition of "CMS" it might be out of my league!

Thanks! We've been doing pretty good this year. This is the first year where it's become more of a business than a hobby. We have about 130 in
breeding right now, about 20 on reserve, and another 30 or so we're going to put into breeding next year! We've had just shy of 100 kits born this
year, and we're expecting to close the year out with about 120 total.
The webcams are something I need/really want to put back into the new site. We haven't been able to work out a good way to do them yet. The chins
keep eating the cables and cameras!
I'm thinking of getting an IP camera, versus using streaming sites (we've used uStream and a couple others
in the past) which have left us disappointed and frustrated. First, I have to read up a lot more on how to get that set up so it actually works and
I'm not just wasting money on a fancy camera that doesn't get used.

Thanks! I actually made it a bit larger than what the template originally had. I'm thinking of removing it from the banner and incorporating it into
the main body of the text below now that you mention that!

I have nothing to hide! Maybe "they" will want a chinchilla!

Thank you! I was really never happy with that Yahoo! template.

Thanks you for pointing out the font issue too! I'll see what I can do to clean that up!
I was going for a professional, yet relaxed feel. Most
are in need of a lot of work,
in my opinion. Not all of them are that bad, but those are from some of the more established breeders around the country.
We have a show we're attending next weekend and a national conference for breeders the first weekend of November, so I plan on really getting our
name out there. Plus, we're hoping to expand out of our home and into an actual storefront next year, so the better looking online presence ads some
legitimacy to our business. I wanted to make something that sets us apart from all the other sites out there.

I would imagine they would taste like licorice and grass. They eat a lot of loose grass and hay. The pellets we feed have a mild licorice flavor,
while the supplement we use has a strong licorice flavor and odor. Yes, I tried some after having a couple sodas.
