Yeah, I was just wonder the same...I for one would never house my chin with anything other than a fellow chin, but our local pet store, (owned by my ignorant neighbors) has a cage with one chin, and about 6 or 7 degus in it...the poor little chin was hidding the the far corner as far away from the degus as possible.

same thing happeneing here :(

at a local pet shop there are degus and chins together and they're basically advertising that if you buy a chin get 25% off a degu or if you buy a degu get 10% of a chin :( :( and they are all living together...quite sad actually.....

When I first got my female chinchilla (Chilla) I let her live with my 2 degus for a few months and they got along good. The only problem that we had was that Chilla liked to sleep during the day and the degus would bug her a lot trying to play so she would bark at them. We never had any fights and they seemed to be really good friends :) . Now we have them separated so that Chilla can sleep during the day but they still visit from time to time.

Hmmmm...I never ever heard of people housing these two animals together.So I have no idea if it can be done.Some people house other animals together like bunnies and piggies and even rats and mice (which is VERY risky and not a good thing)...

yeah, i house rats and mice, and i have heard of people who have successfully housed chins and degus but they had a huge cage and the chin was able to be left alone in the daytime from the chins...i just think it really depends on the animals' personalities as well as the species.:)

my freind had a ginnie pig and a rat and they loved eachother it was very cute my mother in law used to have a ginnie pig and a bunny in together and they could care less about eachother but they didn't fight or hate eachother they were fine with eachother.
