degu are wonderful pets. Very intelligent, naughty and curious. One thing I would say its read up as much as you can before hand on everything from food, bedding and cages to toys and activities.
My degu have free run and I would just like to inform you that depending on how you feel it is best to block off a area in a sealed room just for them to play in. I use my bedroom, I make a temporary blocked off area every time they come out as I do not have enough room for a full time space. My degu love to chew and eat everything and anything. If you like your wall paper, I would advise that you get some sort of plastic garden path edging to go along the top of the scurting board and the bottom of the wall. I have lots of wall paper missing from being eaten. Also the door, wardrobe and bedside table has chunks missing. I just wanted to let you know incase you live in a rented property or with people that would get angry at the missing parts.
Enjoy you new arrivals and feel free to ask if youd like to know anything else.
