When buying baby chinchilla, we should not only observe the health signs of chinchilla, but also pay attention to whether the baby has bad habits. Otherwise, in the process of domestication in the future, it will make the owner very hard. First, the age of chinchilla is very important. If you buy a chinchilla that is very old, it can’t be domesticated. Generally speaking, the standard grey can be distinguished from the color and size of the coat, and the back hair of the adult is smaller than that of the young. But for inexperienced breeders, it’s still too difficult. Chinchillas under 8 months old are smaller. In addition, it is not recommended that you buy and raise chinchillas under 2 months old. Although they have been able to live independently, premature separation from the mother will be detrimental to future growth. 2. Appearance and body shape of chinchilla: round face; uniform hair color; no purchase of hair defect; sound limbs; fluffy and even hair on the tail. 3. Teeth: healthy teeth are yellow and flat. If the teeth are found to be misaligned and of different lengths, they cannot be purchased. Excreta: dark brown ellipsoid with high hardness. If the feces are soft or loose (the hair on the anus is contaminated), it can not be purchased. 5. You can’t buy those who are irritable. If you find that chinchilla has the problem of urinating to people, you can’t buy it.
Many people still don’t know what blood matching is. Blood matching refers to that the female chinchilla will continue to be in estrus after childbirth, and ovulation will occur once within 24 hours. At this time, if the male chinchilla copulates with it, it is called “blood matching”.
Although the success rate of blood matching is very high, it is usually only used to increase the breeding yield in the breeding farm. It is not recommended to keep a Pet Chinchilla at home.
Just imagine that when the female chinchilla had just given birth to a baby chinchilla, she was a weak woman, and she was forced to mate by the male and became pregnant again. Originally, the female chinchilla had to supplement a lot of nutrition during the lactation period to supply the kitten and her weak body. Now she has a new BB in her stomach, which not only reduces the quality of milk, but also lacks the nutrition for the newly pregnant kitten.
Such blood matching, so that the female chinchilla pregnancy, not only harmful to the mother’s health, but also to the lactation of the newborn and new pregnant fetus body affected, quality decline. In severe cases, it is easy to cause female chinchilla to be paralyzed or have no milk due to lack of nutrition, and sometimes the next fetus will have stillbirth or abortion.
Therefore, in order to avoid the occurrence of blood matching, it is strongly recommended that when the female chinchilla is pregnant, or before the expected delivery period, the male and female should be separated. It is better to prepare a child female cage for the pregnant female dragon, so that the female chinchilla can spend the pregnancy and lactation stage here, and do not have a fluke mind!
Just after the birth of chinchilla and kittens will be particularly vulnerable, need special patient care of the owner. First of all, after the birth of the baby dragonfly, the owner should prepare a comfortable and warm living environment for it and hemp. Then timely observe whether the kitten’s fur is completely dry, if it has been dry, it means that the kitten is very healthy. If the fur hasn’t been dry for a long time, and baby chinchilla is making noises, then the owner should keep warm and adjust the ambient temperature to a higher level. After childbirth, the owner must let the cat alone with the baby, because the longmao Baba will cause varying degrees of influence and damage to the whole process of breast-feeding, they will be expelled by the furious mother and scurry around in the rat cage, so it is easy to hurt the young kitten. For the comfort of the entire chinchilla family, we must raise them separately before the birth just like the male and female. In addition, the kitten will become naughty and lively after opening his eyes. They gnaw at the cage and even get out of the cage. Therefore, ordinary rat cages can’t hold young kittens. The owner needs to prepare a more compact cage to prevent the kitten from escaping. Then all the toys and springboards in the cage are removed to prevent the kitten from being naughty and hurt. In the first few days of birth, the owner also needs to carry on the necessary supplementary feeding. Because, many chinchilla babies will have different degrees of weight loss in one or two days after birth, which is mainly due to the fact that it takes a process for the mother of chinchilla to milk, and then supplementary feeding is needed. Generally, under normal circumstances, artificial supplementary feeding should be carried out in 3-4 days. When the weight of the kitten stops falling, it means that it has eaten the mother’s milk, so it does not need to be assisted feeding at this time. However, if there are more than 2 chinchillas in one litter or the female is old and weak, the owner should make a decision to carry out artificial supplementary feeding to ensure the health of the baby and the numbness of the chinchilla.
