    Quarentine cage redo!

    I decided to upgrade my chins from plastic shelves lined with fleece to a fully wooden cage. Was not cheap or particularly easy, but I love how it turned out and knowing they're safe makes it all worth it, my standard grey learnt how to unpick stitches which helped boost my decision along!!! I...

    Squish Bonding. Best Method Or Cruel?

    I can see both sides, in my mind it seemed cruel and I wondered how anyone could do it... However, when I went to get my second boy, the breeder explained that they can just ignore each other if they're in separate cage and then will just fight when put together. I was very worried, but trusted...

    A Couple Random Questions

    My boys are the same, before I got my second one... My boy loved his out of cage time and it was hard to get him back in. He seems happy enough now, I can only imagine that he's happy enough and getting enough exercise he doesn't feel the need to come out (:

    Feeding with 2...

    So was just wondering how do people with 2 chins feed them but also make sure they are both eating healthy amounts... Should I feed them in different points of the cage? Or do I just let them eat out of each others bowls... They happily sit together and share 1 bowl

    My boys

    So I got my second chin today 🎉 and with the help of the breeder, they are already together (I know this isn't advised) but they are so happy together and I was so worried they wouldn't get on! I just looked over to see them grooming each other already! :)

    Just Double Checking..

    I think it would mainly depend on your chins as my chin chews anything and everything he can get his paws on! So I definitely wouldn't use it with him :)

    Just Double Checking..

    I think a chinchilla will eat that and I doubt it's safe...but I don't know for sure

    2nd chin!!!

    So I am going to get a brother for my 1 year old boy and was wondering whether the age gap matters. Would it be better to go for a slightly bigger age gap? I have the option of a 6month old chin or 9week old that has been with his mum

    Bonding chins?

    Oh, also is it worth seeing if I can bring him to possibly meet any possible chinchillas to try the neutral area method or not?

    Bonding chins?

    Thank you so much, also what about their personality? How do I know whether he'll get on with another chinchilla or is it mainly down to luck?

    Bonding chins?

    So, I have one fluffy boy currently but am thinking about maybe getting another... What are tips and tricks with helping chinchillas bond? Also is there anyway to know if a chinchilla will likely not bond? Anything about bonding would help!

    The Debate On Playtime

    I get my chinchilla out every day at the same sort of time and he knows that, I leave the lower door to his cage open the entire time. I aim for an hour but by about 45 minutes he goes to the top of his cage and stares at me until I feed him. The thing with my chinchilla, he will bark at me if I...
