As crepuscular rodents, who are most active at dawn and dusk, chinchillas feed in the early morning and late evening and eat by sitting on their haunches, holding the food in their forepaws.
Wild chinchillas spend most of their waking hours searching for food. You can encourage this natural behaviour by scattering their chinchilla food around their accommodation, hiding hay, nuggets, herbs and forage mixes in paper bags, cardboard tubes and boxes.
Chinchillas also love chewing and shredding things such as banana Leaves, cardboard, unbleached loofah, hay bars, seagrass toys and coconut shells. You can add some extra chewing fun by providing untreated softwood, such as apple, elm, hawthorn, hazelnut, pear, poplar or quince twigs.
Our chinchilla food has been developed with their specific needs in mind, so you know your furry friends will be getting the exact nutrients that they need when you choose Burgess.
Made at our very own factory in the heart of Yorkshire, we use only the highest-quality ingredients so you can give your chinchilla the very best.
