Healthy Chinchilla Marketplace

Responsibly Bred Chinchillas

  • We hand-pick our Chins after researching each parent’s family history (pedigree) to be sure our chinchillas are free of genetic issues and diseases
  • Chinchillas are generally docile and curious, but when poorly bred or improperly cared for they can be high strung. Our Chins receive expert care and are specially selected and bred to be naturally more even-tempered.  We make sure they are hand-tame so you don’t need to spend 6-8 months or more taming them yourself.
  • Chinchilla fur is the softest in the world, 50x more dense than human hair. Our Chins have great quality fur and they look great too! This is due to their genetic make up, our pairings, and our specialized care. It’s the type of difference you don’t have to be a chinchilla expert to see!

The Other Guys

(pet stores, inexperienced breeders, non-experts)


  • Chinchillas are one of the most commonly inbred exotic pets. Many irresponsible breeders and virtually all pet sores DO NOT keep proper records. The other guys may be offering a chinchilla that could have fatal genetic health issues due to inbreeding and other poor breeding practices.
  • Chinchillas can be fed low quality chinchilla pellets and not kept in proper condition. The other guys often overlook the importance of chinchilla specific nutrients in feed or routine dusting and habitat maintenance.
  • The other guys may not have the handling expertise or understand the need to hand-tame their chinchillas. and even if they do, they may not take the time to teach you to handle your chinchilla safely. That means hours of wasted time you spend attempting to tame a potentially stressed and aggressive chinchilla.


  • The other guys may not have the experience and depend on misinformation (there’s a lot of it out there)
  • The other guys may not have as much time invested in chinchilla care and research to know what signs to look for regarding their health
  • The other guys may not have the knowledge or want to take time out to instruct you in caring for your chinchilla and avoiding injury
  • The other guys may not have the knowledge or want to take time out to instruct you to identify health issues with your chinchilla


  • The other guys probably aren’t chinchilla experts and rather than offering chinchilla supplies by chinchilla professionals, they may be using the first thing with ‘chinchilla’ on it they could find and sell.
  • The other guys may think any old feed, or supplies is alright for your chinchilla. They may not quite grasp that chinchillas have chin-specific needs and deserve chin-specific feed and chin-specific supplies intended to make their lives the best they can be.
