$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.

The best wheel available. Silent and durable, all our chins have one and it is required for every adoption.

CC-8 Carrier $30
Measures 8"w x 12"d x 8" high. It has a 3" deep metal tray and is made of sturdy 1" x 1" wire safety-finished to protect your pet and your hands. Fully assembled, and ready to use.
Ours are modified and have one handle on the top instead of the two pictured.
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.
