    Cleaning Regimen?

    Funny cause I was about to post and ask if anyone had more efficient cleaning methods... Anywho, I clean the cages once a week. I swap out fleece liners for a new clean set and change their pee dishes. (Similar to what you have set up) I have a 3 tiered ferret nation cage and the whole process...

    I need to stop going on CL this happens too often

    Yup. I just made the mistake of looking on CL too... http://eugene.craigslist.org/pet/4908759988.html In case it's gone before anyone sees. She wants to breed her female chinchilla so she can experience the joy of childbirth. Sent an email with information and expressed concern for her...

    To neuter/spay or not?

    Okay thanks much for the responses! Separation it is then!

    To neuter/spay or not?

    Okay. So I am an owner of three beautiful chinchillas. 2 girls and 1 boy. All three of which are separated. 1 girl is incredibly hostile toward any sort of interaction and so I was never able to bond my two girls. Well recently my other girl (Mika) and boy (Loki), have been having a bit of tug...

    Protecting Chins from Curious Cats

    Hey all, I've been scouring the internet for awhile now looking to see if there is some way to protect my chins from curious kitties. Right now I live in an environment where the two cats I own are very docile and show no interest in my chins. I may here in the next year or so find myself moving...

    420 Chinchillas Rescued

    I thought I'd post this here since I just saw it. Not sure of the exact details of this particular breeding ranch, but thought that everyone here on the forum would want to know about it if you didn't already. First link is the abc 10 site and the second is PETA's...

    In search of less than yr old male chin!

    Try contacting Carlton Chinchillas. I think they have same young male chins for sale. Very friendly and hand tame. Although for the budget I'm not so sure you'll get one THAT cheap, but certainly more reliable than someone pawning off a chinchilla on craigslist. Hope this helps!

    FN liner question

    Are the metal ferret pans magnetic? If they are I could use some tough magnets maybe?

    FN liner question

    So I'm not sure if this has been answered somewhere else but has anyone had issues with their chin trying to just pull the liner for the ferret nation up? I tried using Velcro to hold it down and that only seemed to make her more persistent in pulling it apart. My other chin on the bottom...

    Ferret Nation Model 182

    I actually received my FN cage three days early. I did however place the order over a week ago and the shipping information didn't come up for awhile. Odds are they are stuffed with orders right now. It ships through FedEx and you should get a tracking code on the cage. Hope that helps!

    Frustrations with my chin

    Yeah, I actually have given that some serious thought. Especially since I don't think I'd ever trust anyone inexperienced with chinchillas to take her. The thing holding me back is the guilt of telling this breeder she was going to a forever home and the fact that it's a six hour drive to get...

    Frustrations with my chin

    So this is more of a need to vent than anything, but I gotta say something to people that I know may understand. Sometime back I got my beautiful pink white chinchilla, Kiki, from a breeder up in Washington. Upon first meeting her she was obviously skittish, but that was about it. In the...

    When your nightmare comes true.

    I am really sorry to hear you continue to feel this way. I hope he does not get injured again from your decision to have him free roam.

    Ferret.com is having a huge sale right now on FN's. So if you were holding off then now is your chance! :)

    Ferret Nation Model 182

    WOOHOO! I finally ordered my ferret nation cage. Got a double unit off of ferret.com for only 160.00! That being said I want to make sure that the dimensions are the same as the ones on bass equipment. It'd be a shame if I ordered metal pans and they didn't fit. So anyone with 182 models of an...

    Allergic to my chin...

    Chinchillas have a unique and different kind of fur. Trust me, I am allergic to cats, rabbits, ferrets, and my pet chinchillas are the wonderful exception. Odds are it's probably an allergy to hay or dust. I know I sneeze like crazy every time I go to refill their hay containers. It's possible...

    My chin pulled out my hair...

    Alright then. I was sorta floored when it happened. Cause she did a similar thing when she was introduced to another chin. Long story short I'm thinking she is going to remain a solitary chin. Beard hairs? OUCH! Guess I'll be wearing my hair pulled back from now on. Thanks for the help :)

    My chin pulled out my hair...

    The title kinda says it all. I was poking my head in the cage to move stuff around. Next thing I know she nibbles on my hair and then viciously pulls on it taking out a good chunk. Then she proceeds to eat it. It really freaking hurt and I'm a little upset. This is fairly aggressive behavior...

    Refuses to drink from water bottle?

    Are you sure she's just not drinking from it when you aren't around? I personally would try holding the bottle to her face and try gently coax her into drinking from it. I'm sure she realizes she can drink from it and odds are when she gets thirsty enough she'll drink from it.
