Western timothy hay is the most important part of a chinchilla's diet. Brand depends on availability. We use Oxbow, KMS Hayloft and/or Small Pet Select 2nd crop hay. Pick-up only: $2/lb
Oxbow's Orchard grass is sweet and long-leafed. It makes a great addition to their daily hay. Our chins get about 75% western timothy and 25% orchard grass. Chins love variety and different grass hays are a great way to satisfy them. Available for pick-up at $2/lb.
This year's Blue Grass hay from KMS Hayloft available for pick-up at $2/lb. This is an all leaf hay similar to orchard grass.
Oxbow Essentials Chinchilla Deluxe is a high quality alfalfa based pellet. We both use and recommend an Oxbow diet for all our chinchillas. We have fresh pellets available. Feeding 2 tablespoons per day, a chin will need about 1 1/2 to 2 lbs of pellets per month. Pellets should be consumed within 60 days. A 5 lb bag will fit in a medium box with room for apple chews and more.
Pick up: $1.50/lb any quantity. 50 lb bags available, call for price.
5 lb bag: $7.50
Medium Priority Mail box full, 13 lbs of pellets: $31.50 including shipping.

Rosehips are a good source of calcium and Vit C. We give one per day as a supplement. One pound = about 600 rosehips. Note: chins eat only the red outer shell.
$10 for one pound or $5 for 1/2 pound plus $6 shipping.
$10/lb, $5 for 1/2 pound picked-up.
Oats are a good safe treat and very helpful in hand taming shy chinchillas. Due to their small size, 3-4 can be given in a day while taming. We sell only Purina Race Horse Oats to insure a quality product. A pound will last many weeks.
One pound of oats = 2+ cups.
$2 per pound or $7 Priority Mail shipping included.
Pumice stones in three sizes. The large ones are about 1 oz each. Mediums are what we have on our hanging toys. Small are great carry toys. $1 / .50 / .10
Simple hanging toys made from safe blocks from Toys R Us, pieces of organic apple wood and natural pumice topped by a folded length of Shredder strung on a wire. Each piece is about 7" long. It is recommended that toys be rotated regularly (weekly). $4 each or 3 for $10.
These large wood blocks come with a 5/8" hole perfect for stuffing with hay (we use KMS bluegrass). These blocks are a favorite with our chins as a carry/chew toy as well as mini hay holders. $1 each plus shipping.
The same Blue Cloud as the dust, these rocks are a big hit. Our chins chew the rock and then try to roll in the dust they make. Each rock is about 3 oz and will provide hours of fun. $3 per rock plus shipping. 8-9 rocks fit in a small Priority Mail box, shipping $6.
Brown paper bags stuffed with different types of grass hays: Various timothy hays (2nd and 3rd cuts), Botanical hay, Orchard grass, Meadow grass, Bluegrass, plus a bit of alfalfa, a pinch of crushed rosehips and bits of apple chew sticks. Ingredients vary. $2 per bag plus shipping.
A few scrapes on a horse cookie once a week are our chinchillas' guilty pleasure. The cookies are very hard and will last a long time. Hold onto it tightly and let your chin scrape a bit off. $1 each plus shipping
Bene-bac gel is a probiotic specifically formulated for small mammals. Bene-bac can be administered in measured doses at specific times, making it a powerful tool in supporting a chin's digestive system when administering antibiotics or for any time when supportive therapy is necessary. Available in a graduated 15cc syringe. Normal dosage is 1cc every other day. Shelf life is usually over 1 year.
$9 per syringe plus shipping
Alfalfa is a must for young chins, pregnant and nursing mothers and is a great occasional treat for other chins. These cubes are quite hard and are a great carry/chew toy. One pound is shown. Alfalfa cubes are $1/lb plus shipping.
Lava Bites have been a favorite of chins for years. They can be given as a carry chew toy or strung on wire or a kabob through the pre-drilled hole. Lava Bites come in 3 colors/flavors. $5 for a 3-pak. Add to an existing order or, by themselves, three 3-paks fit in a small Priority Mail box for $21 including shipping.
We use Lixit water bottles exclusively and are very happy with them. Mounting spring included. Remove the turtle. We recommend mounting one bottle per chinchilla in the cage. Mount vertical with the spout at shoulder level to a chin on all fours. It is a great idea to have a spare. 8oz: $7.50 each; 12 oz: $11 each; plus shipping

QC Chinchilla Double Carrier CNC-1610 $70.
This carrier was designed for us to safely carry two chins. Each is protected from the other and there are no worries about chewing the car’s interior. If you have only one chin, the other side can be used to carry supplies. It is expensive, but I believe it is the finest carrier available.
The carrier measures 16" wide x 10" deep x 8" high and is divided into two, 8" wide sections. There is a 2" wide metal "frame" between the sections, to prevent contact between animals. The individual opening tops and front are made of 1" x 1" wire, with a solid metal back and sides. It has a 3" deep metal tray and a pull-up handle in the center. NEW: we now also have this carrier at the same price without the middle divider so it is suitable for a bonded pair or if you just want more room. QC CC-16 Double Carrier $45
The Double Sized Carrier measures 16"w x 12"d x 8" high. It is suitable for a pair or even 3 chinchillas. The carrier has a 3" deep metal tray and is made of sturdy 1" x 1" wire. It has a single lid and is safety-finished to protect your pet and your hands. Fully assembled, and ready to use. NOTE: Our model does not have the middle divider pictured and it does have the handle on top for one-handed carrying.
