    Chinchillas generating electricity

    Anyone? It's a lot of kilowatts going to waste every day. I have to start measuring the number of revolutions of the running wheel there is in 24h but I am sure chinchilla males do 5 miles at least.

    Chinchillas generating electricity

    Hi All, Due to the fact that the globalists are ramping up energy prices through the world (at least in the countries under their strict control US, Canada, UK, EU, Australia, NZ, Japan). As far as I know electricity for residential properties in Mexico is free. Anyway I have two boys who cover...

    Sand, dust or both for baths

    Thank you Amethyst. Yes the pumice dust has to come from US unless they start mining it somewhere near volcanoes in Italy or Iceland. I try your suggestions. The sands I used so far are not fine enough.

    Sand, dust or both for baths

    There must be a decent level of misinformation then or there is not enough pumice dust in Europe. I only see sand and sand with calcium powder on sale. This is the only pumice dust I found from California...

    Sand, dust or both for baths

    Hi, I would like to know your opinion on that. I have been using sand for their baths, it's definitely not a dust or there is some small amount of dust in the sand but if I reuse the sand after couple of uses the dust is no longer there. I see people on videos using only fine dust but I heard...

    Male chin peeing from top of the cage

    Hi All, I hope you are well. I have notice that my male chin is very convenient in terms of defecating. He does not bother going downstairs to pee but instead once he leaves the hammock he's peeing from height all over the place sometimes not missing the food bowl. He's over 1 year old and I...

    Tried to Smush Chinchillas Together - One Attacked the Other

    Sorry, I wanted to say "unless the blood is NOT drawn".

    Litterbox recommendations?

    I think just clean them in warm/hot water then dry.

    Litterbox recommendations?

    I have a triangle plastic one that is safe for chinchilla that goes into the corner, it has some hooks to attach to the bars but as you said it not always work so similar to Amethyst I use a heavy rock to keep it in place, you can have a rock inside or outside the litterbox.

    Resetting chinchillas clocks a bit

    Hi All, Did anyone of you try to reset their clocks a bit so they are more active in the late evening rather than between 2 and 3am? I think louder TV entertains them a lot but I don't watch TV myself so they keep sleeping. They react well to the music but after some time they get use to it...

    Tried to Smush Chinchillas Together - One Attacked the Other

    My 5 cents, I think attempting to bond random chinchillas is a hard gamble. I think the best cage mates are family members of the same sex e.g. two sisters, two brothers, father and son, mother and daughter. I think bloodline is important and even if one is dominant and they squabble it won't...

    Karate female chinchilla

    Thank you Amethyst, as always your answers make a lot of sense. Chinchillas are pretty advances species of rodents in terms of the character and they can change a lot over time. They are like little people with their different zodiacs:D I have not seen any blood yet but the fur patches yes. I...

    Karate female chinchilla

    Hi All, I hope you are well. I reckon I own a combative chinchilla to say the least aka killer female chinchilla. They were good friends for over a year in the same cage then when a bit older but rather shy female got little kits then the problem began (they were already separated, mother...

    Running Saucer maintenance

    I checked qualitycage.com once again and shipping + duty taxes makes up 63% of the order. Does it mean everything has to come either from China or a local market otherwise it does not make sense to order things from abroad. China's shipping fees are nothing comparing to what US has to offer. A...

    Running Saucer maintenance

    Hi Thank you for all your replies. I can see TicTac is 16" and cheaper (made in UK) while Chin Spin is 15" and more expensive I reckon the price difference is because of high shipping costs from US. Chin Spin looks like is wider than TicTac though. @Rocknrolldoc I agree, one of my new CONVID...

    Running Saucer maintenance

    Hi again, I can see that the manufacturer of these awesome flying saucers has retired in June 2021. Do we have any good alternatives on the market? I cannot find. Best regards

    My chins are not eating the timothy hay

    For UK readers I ordered some timothy hay from Haybox.club - Timothy Hay Box 'Blend'. I red another thread where Amethyst has suggested to choose something in between rather than coarse cut. It has good reviews. They all 3 chins eat it but their timothy hay eating is inconsistent. I think one...

    Running Saucer maintenance

    It wobbles a little bit, I was wondering if this is to do with the bearing. Thank you for information.
