I don't know much about Chins but if it where me I'd probably just leave the little guy alone for now and let the mama take care of him. Keep trying the vet in the mean time.

I'm not an expert on chinchillas, but as far as I know they born with their eyes open. Since your kits are premature, that probably explains why their eyes are still closed. In the mean time, definitely keep trying your vet!!! It's important for your vet to see them just to make sure they are healthy.
