    Sick chinchilla?

    If the chin isn't eating then you need to be force feeding critical care. Worry about switching feed and hay later. You need to get done good in this chins gut before you have full stasis.

    Can someone help?

    I have also seen issues with penis retention when a male is in pain. My last male surrender had severe bloat. His penis would not retract. Once I delt with the bloat, the penis went back to normal.

    Multiple Paternity Questions

    I'm going to just put this out there... you obviously don't know a whole lot about breeding. And it isn't something you should do lightly.

    Multiple Paternity Questions

    Only the white male could have produced the white kit. So Aldo is the father. As far as multiple father's for a litter, it is possible. Chins do sometimes have dual pregnancies. But there is no way to be sure.

    Chinchilla having multiple seizures

    If a chin is having seizures due to low blood sugar caused by out of cage play time then they shouldn't have out of cage play time at all. Check the front teeth, see the vet. A video helps the vet see what is going on.
