Default Guide to tarantula breeding arrangements

The breeding arrangements of tarantula often follows the guidelines laid down by BTS and are often referred to as 50/50. However, this should be considered a guideline, not an enforceable law so its important to agree the terms with the breeder before sending your tarantula. For the sake of explanation you may wish to refer to this sticky thread which explains our interpretation of the arrangement.

  1. The owner of the mature male arranges transfer to the breeder (considered to be the owner of the female), incurring any costs.
  2. The owner accepts the possible loss of male but expects good care and feeding, as well as any updates on potential results.
  3. The arrangement is usually 50/50% share of any resulting slings, including those from subsequent sacs of the same breeding or with additional females. However, arrangements can be made to different percentages.
  4. The breeder incurs the costs of transporting the resulting slings to the owner of the male.
  5. The breeder incurs the costs of transporting the male back to the owner or forwarding to subsequent breeders.
  6. In the event the mated female is offered for sale the owner of the male should be given the first opportunity to buy. Selling the female on to other parties should continue the breeding arrangements and this should be made clear as part of the sale, and honoured by the new owner. Alternatively an agreement should be sought with the owner of the male as recompence.
  7. In the event breeding isn't considered fruitful, but further mating possible with additional males, it should be made clear to all parties that the split is equal to the parties involved. Therefore you may find 33% or 25% splits.

You should endeavour to obtain correct ID on the sex and identification of the specimens BEFORE considering mating, where possible you should provide details on the last moult and original source.

Whilst arrangements made on RFUK are the sole responsibility of the parties involved, RFUK will consider removing classified access to those who are proved to persistently fail to honour the arrangements. RFUK takes no responsibility for any issues that arise from breeding arrangements.

Question

What happens if the breeder doesn't acknowledge rules 3 & 4, would that be worthy of thread letting people know the breeder is dishonest, maybe a ban from using the classifieds section on the forum the deal was made on?

Nice one.

What about previous member who have ripped people off, so they get a "clean sheet" or ban from using it?

previously the MM loans were in the main classifieds section, so 'bad deals' should already have been reported and be included in there

I like this idea, I think more should be done about scammers, if they can do that to someone why shouldn't they be publicly shown. All it does is ruin the hobby for others, why should they be allowed to get away with it.

That's not a bad idea, joking aside i've seen it done on some of the European forums, 'Terraristik' have a black list on their website of any scammers who shouldn't be dealt with.
