I received a email today. I think that this person needs some advice. I will be sending her a link to this thread.
do you know if chinchillas can be born blind? My chin had a pastel female last friday and it's eyes still arent open. it's active and gaining weight, it was almsot 50 grams at birth but it still won't open it's eyes. i took a warm moistened q-tip and tried to pry them open but i didn't even see her eyes...have you ever heard of that happening? what do you think i should do?
Even if the kit was blind it would have eyes. She needs to get the kits eyes open before a infection gets in them.
