Aww, they are soooo cute! I wish I could have a chinchilla now! My dad says they are just really hard to keep cool enough, because it gets over 100 degrees in the summer where I live. Good luck with your new girlies!

They can be littered trained. And their poops are pretty clean, easy to sweep up. But they are pretty odorless. I am told you can use carefresh under the grate for the litter box. But I would been to train them. They are in a really big ferret nation cage and I just line the shelves with towels, fleece or pillowcases. I'm actually in the process of making them some really nice fleece shelf covers and you guessed it... a hammock Smile

How much do chinchillas weigh? That's gonna be a big hammock.

I don't know if you have them in the USA, I'm sure you must do. But have you guys seen those Lava Ledge chinchilla toys? They're brightly coloured pumice stone ledges that bolt onto any cage bars. They're meant for chinchillas, as they like sitting on them, or chewing them, but they're safe for all small animals. I use them in my mouse cages. My mice never chew them, but they are great little ledges for climbing.

Anyway, your chins might like them scaredy, so look them up Smile

I made wooden ledges with hardware to attach it to the cage. And yes, they are really big hammocks. For these, I will actually sew them and make them sturdy. I don't bother with the mice because the poop and pee on everything and they get really gunky.

Have I mentioned that I love these little ladies!?! The make the cutest little noises. I gave them a few oats last night, one at a time. Zoey nibbled them out of my hand really gently like a horse would. And Chloe took a single oat in her teensy hands and took delicate little bites until it was gone. Eek! So cute!
