Baby Degu's Chewing Cage

Hi everyone!

As you'll know, I have two litters now! The older ones are now just over one month old (can't believe it's gone so fast) and the younger ones are just over 3 weeks old.

They're all extremely healthy, energetic little puddings! All of their eye sights seem perfect, so no problems there, all now eating solids and drinking water.

My worry today is - teething? Is that even something they go through? They all tend t chew on the wired metal cage, although we have a lot of wood, alfalfa and food available to chomp on!

Could this be teething? Or are they just being little buggers? lol

I think they're just being you-know-whats. Mine didn't show that behaviour until they were alot older and it's only a few that feel the need to chew the bars. (Last year at this time, I was caring for two litters of babies like you are now. I still have them all. One cage houses mama Lilac and her four girls; the second cage houses mama Peridot and her four girls; and the third cage — all double-unit Midwest Critter Nation cages — houses papa Sean and his four sons (one from Lilac's litter and the other three from Peridot's litter.)

As part of the development process and their exploratory nature, dogs may try chewing on furniture, shoes and any other items that come along their way. Sometimes, one may also find dog chewing paws. However, there are certain techniques and preventive measures which assist in conquering the dog chewing problems.
