well something with smaller bars would be a major help for a kit. And you dont want TO much room for them anyway. So they cant get to far from mommy. Also kits can often fall of any ledges of shelves and might hurt themselves. So its best to keep them on one floor anyway.

My youngest ones are almsot 9 months now so their fine. But it could be helpfull for anyone with young kits.

Clover's baby is YOURS and that breeder is a ding dong

Please have pets spayed or neutered and wearing an ID tag.
Adoption is the only option

Thanks for all the advice and support! Gus gained friggin 36 grams in his first week! We will be getting/building a new cage as soon as we can (money's tight) and I will look into different litter options. I'd been told the carefresh was good to use, but if I've learned anything about chins it's that any advice I get will be debunked sooner or later. My girlfriend HATES pine shavings but I think she'll like a fleece liner!

Not sure if there is any residual ink content in that stuff. We've used pine shavings that are course, not fine. Aspen is good.
Fortunately chilla droppings are not as messy as g-pigs or rabbits.

most inks these days are soy based So even if there is a teeny bit of ink that made it through its completely safe. rats and Hams are way more sensitive than chins in that area and its highly recommended for them.

Still haven't managed to get a new cage yet, and consequently haven't talked to the breeder yet. He's up to 158g already --tripled in size in less than 3 weeks! I think he may be big enough to move him and his mom back to our own cage by now, so we're gonna try it this weekend and see if he can squeeze through (I will have wire cutters handy, lol.) If he passes the test we will take the cage back Sunday and wash our hands of the whole affair.

It's a real treat to watch these two play together. She does a pretty odd thing sometimes though, in that she'll walk over top of him, grab him around the waste and lift him up a bit, waddle forward, then put him down. Any idea what this means?
