    adopting chin from petsmart please help

    That is what I was worried about actually. I don't have another Ac unit to keep any other room cool in my house. If I can't have them in the same room I won't be able to bring him home. The room they are in is huge it's the bonus room in my house so it's almost as large as a large basement. What...

    Sleeping too much?

    I wouldn't worry about it. Often times younger chins sleep a ton because so much of their energy is being spent on growing. When I first brought home my two chins they slept so much for the first month I was terrified something was wrong with them so I emailed my breeder and posted about it here...

    Goodbye Missy (Unexpected Death)

    I'm so sorry for your loss I cant imagine the pain you are feeling. She was so beautiful and although her life was ended you gave her plenty of love and a very happy life and she will never be forgotten. She looked so happy. Chins know when they are loved.

    Chinchilla Bonding in groups of three

    So I have been wanting to adopt a chin for a long time now since before I purchased my two boys and I found an add on craigslist close enough for me to drive to. I am not planning for the new chinchilla to be able to bond with my already bonded pair and I have a separate cage prepared for him...

    Chin eye bugers

    Both my chins get little eye crusties right after they dust bath. I use blue cloud so I don't understand why the dust bath would irritate their eyes? They literally only get them right after a dust bath. Maybe because they are both so young? Does this happen to anyone else's chins cause it has...

    Remove second floor in Fn or keep?

    So I have a double model FN cage and I have seen a lot of chin owners that don't have that middle floor and just make it one large cage. I was just curious as to how everyone else likes to use their Fn and if their chins prefer the second floor or prefer the jumping room? Really the only thing...
