Question Wishing she were bigger

Hello everybody, I have a few questions. At what age do chinchillas reach there adult size, I have a very devlish 4 month old that is like houdini. She can escape out of the smallest spaces. I have had to seperate her form her cagemate because she wont stay in the much larger cage. Also how much food daily should an adult healthy chinchilla be consuming in a day. Thanks guys

Chinchillas usually reach full size anywhere from 9 months to 14 months.
Most chinchillas can have food all the time as they will eat only what they need to. If you notice you chin getting grossly fat then you will need to monitor its intake, but most times this is not necessary.
