    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! :)

    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?

    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!

    Chin with attitude!

    Hi all, so my lil boy, Chiko, has got a proper attitude and hops around like he owns the place! I've only had him for just over a month! I've heard of chinchillas owning you not the other way around but I was surprised at how quickly it happened! 😂 Does anyone know any ways to decrease...

    Cleaning a stained litter tray...

    Hi, so I'm a relatively new chin mum (very happily so might I add ☺️) and my lil chin has pretty much litter trained himself. As much as this makes my life easy, he's managed to already stain his baking tray that I use and he's only had it for about 2/3 weeks. Is this normal or does anyone know...
