    Developing Aggression

    Hi All, I'm looking for some advice. I have 4 female chinchillas who live together in a very large cage. They have an hour or more of playtime nightly and have been extremely peaceful up until this point. I had to leave home for a few days, and although I had a sitter to provide basic...

    Chin Foot Care

    Hi everyone, I'm noticing that there is a significant amount of callus on my chins' hind feet (spreading horizontally from the main foot pad, like a little lip). One looked quite dry and cracked, so I've been putting some neutrogena chapped hand lotion on all their feet, just to see if that...

    Just Curious...

    I recently got a little 3 month old ebony mosaic who is supposedly TOV (her name is Troi). How does TOV affect mosaic chins? Her face and chin are a little darker than the rest of her (which is freakin' adorable with her little pink nose; I attached a pic cause I couldn't help myself), but I...

    Musical Chin

    Hi All, I've got a bit of an unusual girl - she gets really excited when I play music. She runs around the room or her cage, sticks her nose through the bars, and gets almost hyperactive. I thought it was funny, and it didn't seem to be causing any problems, until recently. Yesterday, she...

    Breaking the sorting habit

    Hi All! About 2 months ago, my chin Inca started to sort her food - picking up pellets and throwing them away, then digging through the dish and scattering the food all over her cage. I took her into the vet and voila! malo. She's had this problem once before, but this is the first recurrance...

    Tips on 3-legged chin set-up

    Hi All! It looks like I'll be rescuing a sweet little 3-legged chin from a pretty awful situation, and I'm looking for tips on housing. Anyone have experience with chins with disabilities? I'm just looking for some guidelines beyond the normal so I can create a safe place for her. Thanks, Steph

    "Alternative" Treats :)

    Hi All, I posted something similar under the "safe treats" thread, but I thought I'd post it elsewhere since that thread seems to be falling into the "to raisin or not to raisin" debate... What do people think about giving things like dried hibiscus petals? I got mine from a tea/spice shop I...

    Show Temperment

    Hi All! There's a show coming up in April in my area, and I've had several people tell me I should go... so I think I'm going, but I've also had these same people tell me I should show one of my girls. I'm not sure it is a good idea, since she is really a hands-off kind of chin (she's finally...

    Washington

    Here's the contact info for a few vets I got off of CnQ a few months ago. I haven't been to any of them yet, so if anyone has comments on them, that might be good. Dr. Jennifer Tavares, Dr. James C.Little, or Dr. Kathryn Krueger All Creatures Animal Hospital 4091 State Hwy 3 West...

    Hi! Back for more!

    Hi again everyone! Imagine my sorrow when I finally succeed in getting internet access in my new place, and I find CnQ is gone! I'm glad that it's back - or close enough. So - since I've been gone, here's a bit about me... I'm a wildlife rehabilitator in real life, and I am a chin mommy to...
