Chinchilla Sitting

You have decided to have two adult mixed-sex chinchillas and want them to live together as one married couple. Be careful with the first acquaintance – sitting down. Animals may not immediately accept each other. If you put one beast to another in a cage, then as a rule a conflict will immediately arise, because the owner of the cage considers their cage to be their territory and does not want to let a stranger into their territory.

It is best to introduce the animals to a short, safe distance first. You can plant them in two different cells and put the cells for a short time (for example, for a week) nearby, start bathing them in a common sand. Then put the chinchillas in a new cage unfamiliar to them and watch them carefully, the chinchilla will first be examined for an unfamiliar cage, and then they will begin to get acquainted, at this point you need to be on the lookout. Beasts can, as immediately tear apart, and after a short time.

Breeding Chinchillas

If you managed to plant chinchillas in such an easy way, then this is good, if not, then you can put them in the carrier during the daytime and also observe that there would be no fights there. The space is small in carrying, chinchillas, as a rule, do not fight there. Some breeders calm down the instigators of the conflict when planting in different ways – cutting under the root of the vibro-aggressor’s roots (the mustache grows over time, but the chinchilla immediately after cutting the mustache feels vulnerable and usually ceases to conflict). You can still put the aggressor in the carrier and put the closed carrier for several hours in a cage to the intended partner. You can also rub your nose on the genitals of two partners. BUT, keep in mind that there are females and males which generally do not have the opportunity to plant with exactly the partner with whom you want. It happens that the female is affectionate and timid with this partner, and with another she is ready to tear it to shreds in a matter of minutes and no methods and tricks help. No need to plant chinchillas for mating once. These are not dogs. Chinchillas can live together for a year, and bring offspring only in the second year of cohabitation.
