Daily Chin Care
Chinnie things that need to be done every day!
These things to do are divided up into morning and evening tasks! Also, there are a couple of miscellaneous tasks that can be done anytime (well, whenever your chins allow).
Morning Tasks (first thing in the morning):
Check on chins!! (I always sing them a morning song.)
Fill up food bowl with chinnie pellets after emptying out soiled food, clean bowl if necessary.
Check level in waterbottle, fill up if necessary.
Give out alfalfa hay cubes, if necessary.
Clean out any soiled or wet hay from cage floors.
Make sure to restock the cage with chew toys if your chin has destroyed them all.
Evening Tasks (last thing at night):
Check on chins before bed!!
Fill up bowl with fresh pellets, clean up bowl as necessary.
Give out a handful of Timothy hay for each chinchilla.
Make sure the waterbottle has enough water for the night.
Clean up wet or soiled hay or toys from cage.
Give your chins enough chew toys to last through the night!
Playtime for 30 minutes or more. Whenever your chin wants to play!
Treat time! Only one shredded wheat, rosehip, or other healthy treat a day, no more than that!
Clean up any chinchilla messes outside of their cages.
Give chinnies their dustbaths, if they need them.
