I wasn’tIf you do a google search, there are numerous places where you can find it, but the relevant part of the statute reads like this:
(b) Regulating certain actions concerning fowl or rabbits.--No person shall sell, offer for sale, barter or give away baby chickens, ducklings or other fowl under one month of age or rabbits under two months of age as pets, toys, premiums or novelties
wait a second here...back up...it went from...I put an ad up saying these babies would be ready by January 30th.......why am I now getting read rules and laws? I’m not in this to make money. It’s not like a bunny peddler. i Told the woman the whole situation when she called, and I felt put on the spot. I’m not good in those situations. Please don’t start making me not wanting me to come onto this forum out of fear that I’ll be scolded. I did not sell, and would not sell a bunny that was not ready...no matter what the law said."The road to hell is paved with good intentions."
The point of this (and similar) legislation is to protect young animals and prospective pet buyers from the harmful consequences of ignorance, not interfere with people who know what they are doing and are going about their business in a conscientious way (oh, dear. I just heard David Rasche as Sledge Hammer saying, "trust me, I know what I'm doing") These laws get fine-tuned when someone who does know what they are doing brings to light an unintended consequence when someone paints with too broad a brush - something the do-gooders who pushed for the law may never have considered.
I had legitimate questions about my new kits that were born yesterday...I threw in the tid bit about the others being called about.
please don’t refer to me as ignorant...please ...just be helpful and kindhearted...I would never hurt my animals...other than Spike
