My one chinchilla don't like pellets and just throws them out but is the best type of mix food. I am using vitakraft vita natural mixed with a forge mix. He seems to enjoy it and not as much out the food is on the cage floor. I would like to know what is the safest food for him .
No chin food that has more than pellets is good. A health chin food contains only pellets. Anything else mixed in is junk. Obviously they will eat around the pellets to get to the junk food- it's like handing a kid a plate with vegetables and candy- they will eat the candy and ignore the veggies. Oxbow is a good brand that you can find in many pet stores. Some people sell other good options here.
