    I am getting 2 female degus later this week from an animal sanctuary. Me and my dad built a cage from wood and mesh, using instructions from octodondegus.weebly.com, but I don't know what to put in it! I've got a metal wheel and some shelves, but thats all. Any ideas? :confused:

    Been researching degus for a while now. Won't be able to get them for quite a few months, but I would like to know what I'm getting myself into :hehe: So, questions: What does your cage look like? Did you make it/buy it? Where from? What diet do you feed, exactly? What choices are there? What...

    hello all, pretty much as stated above my Degu's won't use their dust bath. They don't sit in or anything. Most they do is they will drag their hay or piece of litter into it but won't bathe. How do you I get them to start doing it? I leave it in for about 20-30 minutes at a time just...

    I just got a Degu, and the man at the pet store had been feeding it a mixture of non-molasses Guinea Pig food and Budgie (bird) food, and timothy hay.

    :degu: :degu: I just can't believe it. I didn't see what all the fuss was with all the "degu" talk and today I was in the pet store buying food for my little frogs when I saw these little adorable critters! They reminded me of little squirrels without the fluffy tails. My heart was instantly...

    I had been worried that my delay in separating my two degus would result in pups. Everyone has told me to separate them as soon as possible because inbreeding could be dangerous. I’d noticed this week that Cleo was getting rather hefty around the midsection and suspected overeating as the...
