That time of year again
« on: December 08, 2017, 09:34:01 AM »

So its coming up to Christmas and i am dreading putting up the Christmas tree up as the chins constantly try to climb in it, on it, chew it, pull the decorations off etc etc. so my question is  how do you keep them away from your tree? also would it be worth it to get a real tree and if so what kind of tree?
thanks in advance.

The chinchilla club recommends not allowing chinchilla to range free outside of small designated 'chin proof' areas. Having access to artificial or real pine trees can easily result in ingestion of dangerous materials. Wiring and lighting is extremely dangerous for chinchillas to chew on. The best way to keep chinchillas away is to wall them off with play pen barriers or enclose them in a chin proof room.
I'm a programmer not a chinchilla breeder. I learn by asking questions just like you.
