Question Chins Vs. Rabbits

i have previously had rabbits, and considering that i've read that chins are 'virtually odorless,' i was wondering: do rabbits smell more than chins? or is this just a bad comparison?

Ive never had a chinny, but my rabbit has no smell at all. As long as your bunny is fixed (the smell goes down ALOT) and you keep up on cleaning their litter box, smell shouldnt be an issue.
The chins at the petstore dont exactly smell like roses IMO, but thats probably not the best place to judge LOL

As long as you clean the cage, there's no smell.
If they get mad or frightend they can spray, and this smells bad, but not for long

I think that chinchillas smell much less than rabbits, and WAY less than hamsters/guinea pigs/gerbils. I am actually constantly astonished at how odorless my chinchilla is.

As long as a chin is kept in a clean cage it will have no odor.

My rabbits don't smell either. I have 3 rabbits all living in the same room and people are always surprised when I show them the rabbits, that I have 3 of them and 3 litter boxes for them and you can't smell them in our apartment at all. Where you're rabbits fixed, because fixing them helps reduce the urine smell. Litter box training and finding the right litter/cleaning schedule helps too

I have friends who have rabbits and they're cages are cleaned constantly...they still smell more than my chin...i have a guinea pig and they are smelly also...my little brother and sister have a mouse and a hamster which smell more than my chin...I use fleece liners in her cage and change them and wash them one time a week...i have never had any smell from her cage before and i don't think it is something that even has a chance of happening...they're very clean animals as long as you keep their surroundings clean 8)

it depends on how well you matain your care for them. if you change their cage once a week on a schedule then you won't have an ordor. if you ahve one or more chins/ rabbits then you change them every two to three days. that's what do with my chins i change their cage at least every two to three days cause three of them live in the same cage...
