Question

Is it ok to have these things in the same room as the chins? Is it harmful to them? For example glade plug-ins, or candles.

I avoid them in the same room, but don't hesitate to use them in the rest of the house (no incense or really smoky candles). They aren't as sensitive as birds are, but they can be sensitive to strong smells and irritants.

I wouldn't use the glade plug ins at all...around any animal. I wouldn't think that a candle that didn't smoke too much would be okay in moderation. Seriously I'm not too sure, I never burned candles in the same room as my rodents (I had a room full of different kinds of animals...so I would just call it the rodent room...lol)

Also, if you trim the wick on your candle it won't smoke as much. I use air freshener in my room like once a day. 2 sprays of oust (quick sprays mind you) away from the cage. I have a male mouse, so he likes to get smelly.

My chin opened a chrismtas present for me one year. She had half the paper off before I could catch her.

Be really careful using anything scented around chinnies...their respiratory systems are really sensitive, so anything too strong can make their breathing labored.
