    Contact the national chinchilla society, they may be able to point in the direction of your closest breeders.
    Bare in mind that chinchillas shouldn't be sold in the current circumstances (its only been made clear that dog and cat breeders can and even then mostly if they run as a business).
    The youngest a chinchilla should be for rehoming is 12 weeks and their character is more known the older they are.
    Being young has little baring on how they accept you/taming etc. kits are often crazy little things.
