Chinchilla Cages

Everyone loves chinchillas due to their mild manners and their luxurious coat. They can be good house pets, and can be potty trained. They are available in many color variations and are prized for the more beautiful or rare colors.

Chinchillas require housing that meets certain criteria. Since they are big on chewing, we recommend that the cage be built of galvanized or stainless steel wire. PVC coated wire is always more attractive, but the PVC can be chewed off over time. Since stainless is so much more expensive, most people order galvanized. Any cage that you find on these pages can be ordered in stainless if you prefer. Just call or email us and we will be glad to work up a quote for you. The next thing that they need is for the mesh of the wire to be small. We recommend that you not use anything over 1”x1/2” for the walls. The reason for this is that chinchillas like to get rambunctious and jump around the cage on occasion, and even bounce off of the walls of the cage. When they do this, you must be sure that their feet cannot go through the wire. Many chinchillas have broken their legs in this manner, due to the incorrect wire being used. The wire on the floor or on the shelves and ramps should be 1/2”x1/2” galvanized wire. This is easier on their feet than the larger 1”x1/2” used on the walls.

We do not believe that chinchillas should be on the wire at all times. This is why we build all of our chinchilla cages with a 4” deep sliding dropping pan. The pine shavings or other strata can be put in the pan to a depth of about 2” and then the animal lives on the shavings except when up on one of the shelves for play, etc. Most cage builders use an outside pan for the dropping pan. Usually it is 2” deep, but may be deeper. The problem we always had with this set up is the difficulty of cleaning. You have to unhook the pan from the cage, and lift the cage out of the pan in order to dump and clean it. With our deep sliding pan you only have to reach in and lift the hinged ramp so that it will clear the 3.5" deep pan as you slide it out. Cleaning and maintenance is much easier.

If you are afraid that your chin is going to throw out the shavings, we offer the litter guard option. They are available in 4” tall or can be custom built taller if required.

Below are a few of the most popular chinchilla cages. We show both individual pet cages, and some breeding cages.

Check out the ferret cage section and the prairie dog section for other ideas. Any of those cages can be built out of the appropriate wire for the chinchillas.

Also remember that we are always glad to custom build your cage. That may mean starting from your ideas, or some modification to our designs.
