Chinchillas

I have been keeping Chinchillas Since March 2011. They are Great pets, very rewarding and lots of fun.

 

I keep my Chinchillas in converted metal Parrot Cages. This gives them loads of space to play in.

 

 Chinchillas love toys and stimulation, so I provide mine with plenty of different toys.

I feed my Chinchillas on Supreme Science Selective Chinchilla. This is a premium food, it contains the right nutrients with no added sugar which is vital for chinchillas, it also tastes great so they love it. They also eat plenty of Excel Herbage, dried grasses and herbs. All treats should be given in moderation. Mine enjoy, dried herbs, flowers and grasses the most, with an occasional piece of nut or dried fruit.
