    Hi I am adding a third level to my chins cage and wanted to make the top primarily ledges and hanging house and cuddle tubes and hammocks and just fill it with items like that. I went online to gather design ideas and saw a lot of long wooden ladders that go from one side of the cage to the...

    Heat wave coming and instructed to not use AC

    Yeah I'm keeping her in a dark room and using the ac anyway. I did have an idea tho. I have pillow case style fleece now so what if i put icepack in the top layer of the fleece, therefore preventing her from chewing on it and since the fleece would absorb the the water when it melts, she wont...

    Can chinchillas be clicker trained?

    Mine isnt clicker trained but she does know some tricks like walk (walk on two legs) kiss, high five, come, back to cage, spin, and hop up (hop onto shoulder or ledge that i point to). It probably can be done but i would use its dinner as a reward. When i do training its usually crushed rose...

    Chin behavior

    What time did u pick him up? He could've just been excited to see you and thought he was getting time out of the cage, but when you put him down he wanted to go back and rest

    Should I Put The Wheel Back?

    Also another way to stimulate them is training. This may sound odd to do with a chin but one of the ways I bonded and stimulated my chin was training. She knows how to do stuff like come, walk on 2 legs, high five, and spin. Is there an area where you can place blankets down so its softer?

    How to Collect Urine Sample?

    The only thing I can suggest is during the day while he is sleepy take off the fleece liners and have him pee on the plastic pans. Then you could collect from there.

    Should I Put The Wheel Back?

    I would keep it out until they are completely healed just to be safe. However, are they allowed time out of the cage? It sounds like they just want some exercise and stimulation. Another thing that I would suggest is something I do with my own chin. I grab a treat and I hide it somewhere in the...
