Hi Chinchillaboy, I added the photo to your post for you.  If you click the second button in the row of bottoms just above the smilies it will put in the image tags for you.  If you hold your cursor over each button a pop-up box will  tell you what each one does.

::silly::Hi ChinchillaBoy,

     Welcome back!  I love your cage ... especially the part about it being collapsable ... easier to get through the door opening.  Plenty of room for the chins to play and explore. ::nod::

     If you don't need any tools, how do you keep the different balconies/floors stable for the chin?

Yes Jo Ann that is PVC pipe. He loves it. I put the shelf at the door because I like to watch him eat his treats and he also love to stand there and let me scratch him when I am putting his food in.

::silly:: In the bottom of the cage ( I did a close up of it) ... what is that thing on the top left ... purplish/blueish looking ... a hay holder?

    Please be careful with that exercise wheel, the cross bars have been known to break necks and limbs when a chin tries to jump in or out when it's already in motion/moving. Or they can catch their little paws in the wire itself.  :-[

    I love that black pipe "tunnel" for them ... bet they sleep in it sometimes!   :::grins::

    I see you have one of those ceramic dust baths for them ... I love those ... I was given one as a present and put in in Jewel's cage (she's my tripod chin), but she claimed it for her hut and will not get out of it.   rofl

JoAnn,
That is a hay rack.  I have one in Charlie's cage.  They are pretty handy.  Mine looks just like that have has hooks on all four top edges so you can hang it like in the picture or from the roof of the cage.

it also has a salt lick holder on it too the  :chin:

black thing is pvc pipe that i found in my parents basement that they were going to throw out they love to sleep in it too cause it is dark i guess ;D

yeah Buddy L will sleep in it and everything but since i put his house on the top he likes it up there alot maybe cause I moved it on him but Snowball will not even go in the bath house  it I think i may have to get another one and I am going to get another house or build one  :doh:

also the wheel that was the best one that I was able to find the plastic one that i got would stand on the floor or hook on that cage and was open and I had it hooked on the and it snappped right off from his bouncy runs that was his old cage I wnet to every pet store in my area we have a lot
Petsmart, Petco, Petland, Elmers, Pet supplies plus, Walmart, Giant Eagle, I also go into any other pet store I see when I go out of the area  :::grins::

If you could show me a better one I would love to see it :)

I also wanted to ask about those lincoln logs my kids don't play with them anymore and was woundering if they could be use for toys build houses with them for the chins and other stuff
I think they would look so cute for the chins ::silly:: ::silly::

::silly::Hi FluffBall,

    In reference to the exercise wheel ... check out http://www.chin-chillas.com/exercisewheels.htm  at Meadowbrook Chinchillas.   They invented and market the wheels.  We have 6 of them for our chins, they are a little expensive, but no more than the LeoBraun and the other popular one.  I like it MUCH better ... they can go at full speed and are not having to look at a 'moving wall' (the inside of a wheel) as they run.  

     I doubt very seriously that you will find a safe exercise wheel in a pet store or a store like Wal-Mart or K-Mart.  Plastic is a definite  ::nono::

    Good question on the Lincoln Logs ... I'd have to find out the type of wood they are made of and the toxicity of the dye they color them with.   I would think the dye would have to be fairly safe since they are origionally made for children.   Pine would probably be the most economical for them to use to make them, but I'd check it out first.   You may be able to contact the company and get that information.  Since the government is so strict about labeling things, it may tell you on the box they came in.  If not, it should have a toll free number or even a web address.   You'd probably get the best answers from customer service.  

    Let us know what you find out ... I may be searching yard sales!  

    We get a 1" x 2" x 4' untreated pine board and Bill runs it through the saw, making chin-size chew blocks.

It lied about the no tools, and its not collapsable after you put it together. I used those plastic tie things there white and one you do them they cant be undone.
