    Injured foot

    So looked in the cage this afternoon and saw blood all over Darwin's marble slab. It took me a bit to find the injury- hind left foot. I can't tell if it's cracked or maybe a tear from a splinter of wood. I've put on blu-kote. Cage is washed down and I've sort of restricted his cage. The bottom...

    chin buddies for pair?

    I'm wondering if anyone has fleece buddies in with their bonded pairs and if it might cause any squabbles. I brought home another rescue a few months ago and want to start the bonding process.

He can't get enough. Is this a characteristic of all chins, most chins, some chins? I haven't been around...

    new noise

    So finally getting my boy settled in with only one set back transferring to his new cage. The last few days we have heard an odd noise that we are 90% sure was the chinchilla. It sounded like an old creepy door squeaking open. I actually got out of bed to make sure it wasn't any of the doors...

    New chin, fur help?

    I just rescued my very first Chinchilla. I have always had rabbits and hamsters underfoot, but these guys are new to me. I've done my research but would like an opinion on this little guy. He is five years old and unfortunately wasn't kept very well. He needs a lot of TLC but he is super...
