    Greetings from Colorado Springs!

    Stackie: It's really nice here! The only downside (in my mind), is that to go virtually anywhere across town, you need to get on the interstate. But it's a good place to have chinnies, the air is nice and dry.

    Wood shelves

    I just purchased my first shelf from TaylorMadeChinchilla, and I'm impressed- they use kiln dried pine and it is safe and sturdy. If you are open to purchasing rather than building, I would recommend TMC for sure!

    Chin eye bugers

    Yes, my chin has that problem too. I never let him dust for more than a few minutes, and it usually ends in the same eye crust. It doesn't last or seem to cause further irritation though, so I'm not terribly worried.

    Goodbye Missy (Unexpected Death)

    Chinchilla won't jump

    My chin is a bit like that too, he has started to become more comfortable with jumping, and uses his perches more and more, but he still is not very good at landing his jumps. I think a lot of it was that the breeder had him in a much smaller, one-level cage, but now his home is much larger and...

    Black Velvets and Clumsiness

    Hello all, My husband and I have a new chin, black velvet, 7 months old. He is adjusting very well to his new environment, despite the breeder's warnings that he is really "jumpy" and "may take longer to fully tame". That being said, we let him have short playtimes in the evening when he asks...
