    Do you have chin gender preference?

    I was concerned about hair rings too. supposed to get two females but one turned out to be male and like Jawramik i did my research and was concerned about having to check once a month as it would be stress for me and Dazzle. I dont intend to breed him so hopefully they won't become an issue then

    Boy??? Girl??? help needed asap

    Thanks guys, i have telephoned my vet and was told they can neuter at 5 months. A separate cage is not an option as i already have 2 and no room for another lol. I can put a false floor into the one they are in now as i am only using the bottom half due to their age but eventually they will need...

    young chin cage help

Although the cage i have is an 'adult' cage, 4ft high x 3ft wide x2ft deep i can take all the shelving out to minimise height so that only the bottom will be used for a few shelves at minimum height. The bar spacing is also only 1cm wide so thats...

    young chin cage help

    I have an adult chin but will soon be having 2 young sisters (not in the same cage). I have done some research and am getting mixed messages. Some are saying they can go in an adult cage with ledges while others are saying that they should not have higher jumping ledges than 12-18 inches until...

    I cannot find sheets with the right size holes, i found this but am worried about the size of the holes. Would a full grown chin get through this? is the metal ok to use even? https://www.sure-green.com/welded-wire-panels-8ft-x-4ft-standard-3x1-holes.html

I have a greenhouse that i am not using and was wondering if i could use the aluminium frame to make a framework for a cage.
