Looking for chin cages in the UK? Unfortunately this is more tricky at the moment as the chinchilla pet cages market is not as great as the US, so fewer pet stores retail them. Some people will consider bird cages if they cannot find a large rodent cage. Try the following Amazon link: Amazon UK
There are two things Chinchilla Cages Toys recommend chinchilla owners consider when getting ready to buy a cage for their pet.
- Cages for chinchillas should be large. Chinchillas like to roam around, and they also like to jump. Therefore, to ensure your pet is happy and can get the exercise it needs, buy a large cage.
It should be as large a cage as possible, as well as having decent floor space, ramps, shelves and chinchilla wheel, it should also be high, like a parrot cage, to allow for your pet’s need to jump and climb around. Ferret cages tend to fit the required dimensions perfectly, so ferret cages are also great cages for chinchillas.
Some people may choose to purchase a parrot cage instead, although as the nature of these type of cages are designed for a large bird rather than a smaller rodent, parrot cages may not make a suitable cage for chins.
- To help with chinchilla care, avoid plastics. Any chewable plastic in the cage – toys, accessories, even plastic cage frame coating is a potential health hazard to chinchillas should they chew off and swallow any of the plastic.
A cage with a plastic tray is okay unless it has some odd design that would enable your chinchilla to chew at it. However bear in mind that you do need to be thorough when cleaning plastics to avoid bacteria growth in unclean areas – particularly any corner edges. Large metal cages are best. Avoid plastic frame or plastic coated cages.
