The heat plug is a waxy plug like object that is expelled by a female when she becomes open during estrus. It is generally not found in the cage because the chins eat it.

Some girls get a bit moody when in estrus but most don't. Their reproductive slit is more open but requires chin reproductive system experience to identify. Enjoy your girls!

He is letting you know he is frightened by you. You need to establish trust with him. It takes a while to establish trust with a chin. Sit by his cage and talk to him or read to him.

Any hay offered by Oxbow is safe for chins. The specialty varieties should be fed in moderation. Timothy and orchard grass hays are fine to free feed.

I know folks who use fleece liners and they like them. You have to wash them often. No problem with the chins chewing fleece.

I agree with Kristy. You should not allow your cat to play with the chins. Cats can infect chins with pastuerella, ringworm and other illnesses.

You can handle babies shortly after they are born. Mom may not be happy about it. I weigh and sex kits after they are dry. Don't keep kits away from mom for very long until they are a bit older.

Even though the girl you got him from said he was really friendly you must gain his trust. Gaining trust takes time.

I hear what you are saying Pia but chins use whiskers for more than you think. Some dominant chins show their dominance by chewing the whiskers of the less dominant chin. I am not the only one who...

Whisker chewing is not the same as fur chewing. It is a dominant chin behavior. I have personally observed chins change their behavior after whiskers are trimmed.

Old to young often works best for cage mates. I would trim Puff's whiskers before you try introductions. It will help him be less dominant toward a new friend.
