Chinchilla Foods

Here at Online Chinchilla Care, we like to cover every question from the good to the bad, to the mystifying, to the ridiculous and many Chinchilla owners have genuine questions about whether their Chin’s can eat certain food.

So we look at some of the questions about foods for chinchillas that you may not find elsewhere but we know Chinchilla owners are asking.

We look at if they are good for them, whether they should be avoided or welcomed and what the benefits or disadvantages of the Chinchilla eating it or not is. If you can’t find the food you are looking for, drop us a message as we’ve probably not got to that one yet, or worse totally missed it and we’ll review it.
