    How do you tell if a chinchilla likes a show

    Well that's interesting that they hear at the same level we do. For some reason I thought their hearing was much more sensitive than ours. I think I read it somewhere, but I could be remembering that and just made it up in my head. LOL So far it's a no go. I think they've actually become...

    How do you tell if a chinchilla likes a show

    I'm just popping in here with a few questions about everyone's chins watching tv. Until now I've only had a radio in their room, so they've known no action for the past 4+ years unless I'm in there (and I've felt bad about that). How do you know they're interested in a show? So far, I...

    Could this become a problem?

    Thanks for responding Barb. I was hoping they were just playing a little rough. As far as I know, the only times it has happened has been during playtime out of the cage. I usually let them out twice a day; once when I get up, and then in the evening after I feed them and scoop the poop. It...

    Could this become a problem?

    I've had my two rescue girls for about a year and a half now. JoJo is definitely the boss of the two, and has always humped Daphne at times. I'm not sure humping is the correct term; there is no movement once she gets on Daphne's back. And it mainly seems to happen when they are out of the...

    Ferret Nation liner questions (part 2)

    I figured I'd start a new thread to my questions thread. I did successfully make a pattern for the Bass pans and made liners that are just a tiny bit over-sized - maybe a half inch total, but that's okay. They're even, and one side of each liner is not a lot different than the other. And the...

    Ferret Nation liner questions

    Yes, I did know about the vinegar. I just never measure when I put it in the machine because I'm not sure how much should go in. But they always come out clean. How much SHOULD I use? I'm guessing about a cup? Oh, and I know about never using fabric softener too.

    Ferret Nation liner questions

    I will do that before I make any new ones. Wash in hot water for maximum shrinkage?

    Ferret Nation liner questions

    Well I'm glad I decided to check in. I never got notification that anyone had responded and was disappointed. But thank you Amethyst for responding. I will try again with these instructions. I think a big part of my problem for the cockeyed ones and the smaller ones is that I've been laying...

    Ferret Nation liner questions

    Apparently I need detailed instructions on how to make cage liners. I have made 5 sets of liner for my FN182 with Bass pans. Not one of the 10 liners is the right size, or even the same size as any other. In addition to the size issue, how do you do the inside corner of the cutout for the...

    Cage Rattle

    I see you posted this a while ago, so hopefully you have been able to resolve the cage rattling. If not, what part is rattling? With mine, whenever my chins move around in the cage the doors were rattling. I don't know if it stressed them out, but my ears sure didn't like it. My fix was...

    What the heck is this?

    I have no idea how I would get those pictures. I tried flipping JoJo over last night to see, but that did not go well. I emailed Barb (Mt. Zion Chins) this morning and asked if she confirmed that they were both females when she took them in. Haven't heard back yet. I did take a couple more...

    What the heck is this?

    I sure hope they're both girls too, but at this point I'm thinking not. Even if it is ejaculate, if I'm not in trouble now, I will be eventually. UGH!!!!!!!

    What the heck is this?

    "It's most likely an estrus plug. Females will have one every time they go into heat." Oh Good Lord. Tell me that they are not both females and that I have kits on the way. Sooooo not in the plan. JoJo does hump Daphne sometimes, but I just thought it was a dominance issue.
