How Do You Serve Hay To A Chinchilla?
I was just wondering what does everyone use to put their hay in?
I have heard so many sad stories of chins and hay racks and balls and feeders I’m just wondering what everyone uses and what works.
Right now I just put the hay on the shelf and whip it down everyday cause they like to go potty on it. I have tried a bowl and they still pee in it.
We use hay cubes. That is, the hay has been pressed into a pretty solid cube about the same size as the pumice stones for chewing that you can buy. Our chinchillas will chew on this cube until it’s pretty small. It’s kind of messy as there are hay bits all over the place, but at least the main part that is being eaten remains clean.
