    I was looking at the Chinchillas in P@H the other day & the bottom of there cage was cage :blink: there was sawdust under it but they have to walk on the wire of the cage itself, is that right :confused: did'nt look very comfy :eek:

    Mine have a wire bottom cage but the amount of time they actually spend on the floor is very minimal, mine tend to chill out on their wooden shelves and in their hammocks :)

    I am trying to get a chin cage without a wire floor (because I personally don't like them, not because they cause any issue) but I'm not having much luck there so might have to build my own :lol:

    So basically so long as the chins have flat shelves to chill out on then a wire bottom cage does no harm and my chins don't seem to pay any attention to the wire floor of their cage :)

    personnaly i dont like chins to have wire floors, only 2 of my cages have wire floors, and they are padded out with bits of wood and grass matts on the floor to keep them off the wire

    wire floors can cause bumble foot and be uncomfy, most chins however dont spend much time on the floor of the cage, they muc prefer chilling in hammocks
