    My female chinchilla had babies who are now 3 wk old. I removed my male as soon as they were born as I wasn’t sure if he was allowed near them. He is now very subdued being separated even tho he can see her. Would it do any harm to put him back in with mum and babies just now ?

    I posted on here last September regarding my chinchilla’s teeth. He was fine for awhile. Then this last month he has dropped a lot of weight and refuses to eat, drools excessively and won’t come out for any play time.

    Hi guys, I'm just looking on any advice on keeping the area around my chins tidy. They seem to love pushing all their hay around and flicking poop as far as they can.
