Farming chinchillas – as a business

The chinchillas are a beautiful species of exotic rodents from the Andes Mountains that are valued for their exquisite fur, and as fluffy pets. However, before starting your own chinchilla farm you need to take into account several aspects of chinchilla rearing.

Passion for chinchillas

Passion for chinchillas is one of the most important factors for creating a prosperous chinchilla farm. This sort of occupation must be enjoyable for you, and you will have good results without delay if you enjoy working with the chinchillas.

Chinchilla colour varieties

The most common chinchilla colour variety is standard, which is also the colour of wild chinchillas. It is important to know that the standard colour of chinchillas encompasses 250 tones of this colour.

Recessive colour varieties

Chinchilla breeders have managed to create new colour varieties in the past decades through selective breeding. In our farm we also have some of these man made colour variations, such as: white, beige, afro-violet, and blue diamond. Blue diamond is the newest recessive colour mutation created by dedicated chinchilla breeder, it is very rare but also very appreciated.

These colourful chinchillas are in high demand as pets, but recently the international fur market has shown more interest in colourful chinchilla pelts.

Selecting chinchillas for your farm

When you are planning to create a new chinchilla farm it is well advised that you purchase high quality animals from a dedicated chinchilla breeder. When buying a chinchilla for your farm it must weigh >550g. Its fur must have the XXD or XD standard colour tones, also it’s coat density must be high. In addition, the chinchilla’s white belly stripe must be well defined, and its clarity must be from high to very high. Last but not the least, you must avoid furs with brownish colour tones in favour of bluish tones.

Housing for chinchillas

Before starting a chinchilla farm you must make sure that you have an appropriate space, which meets their environmental needs. This space must be: dry, naturally lit by north facing windows (if possible). During winter time the space will need heating (constant 15-17°C for breeding families, and 12-15°C for the youth). During summer the temperature within the farm must not exceed 26-27°C, because temperatures above 30°C are deadly for chinchillas.

It is recommended to put the chinchilla breeding families separate from the youth. Also, it is good to have no more than 300 animals housed in one room. Furthermore, in order to avoid ammonia built up it is worthwhile to install a ventilator 30 cm above the floor, capable of circulating five times the rooms volume.

Forming chinchilla families

When forming new chinchilla families, you need to pick out best quality chinchillas for breeding purposes, also you must avoid inbreeding. Be advised that if you include individuals with undesired traits within your breeding families, their unwanted traits might get passed on to their offspring.

Chinchilla families can contain from 4 females + one male, up to 10 females + one male. In our farm we use families made of 6 females + one male.

Breeding

Chinchillas breed all year round, and females normally give birth to an average of 3 babies/year. If a female does not produce offspring, she will be moved within a different family only once. Right after giving birth females should not be allowed to do their usual dust bath. Furthermore, three days after giving birth the males access should be closed, and the female can be allowed to do its dust bath.

After 50 days the young chinchillas can be weaned and moved to a separate cage.

Raising youth chinchillas

Weaned chinchillas need to be moved to separate cages to youth designated rooms. The dimensions of cages for chinchilla youths are 40x40x40(cm).

After 8 months in the youth area the young chinchillas have matured, and are ready for breeding purposes or pelt processing. By this time the chinchillas should be >550g.

Diet

Chinchillas are fed a special type of mix vegetal pellets (our farm imports this chinchilla feed from a Hungarian producer). Besides their pellets, the chinchillas should have a constant supply of: hay, alfalfa, oat straws, wheat straws, etc. If constantly supplied with these chewy supplements, the risk of chinchillas chewing on their own fur will be significantly reduced. Feeding them with a cereal mix once or twice a week is also highly recommended.

Converting chinchilla capital

Chinchillas are highly valued for their luxurious fur and as house pets. After eight months the chinchillas reach their maximum size and their furs are mature, as pets they can be sold even younger. Each processed chinchilla fur is evaluated individually before sales. When evaluating a chinchilla fur you must take into account its: colour, clarity, fur density, and missing or damaged parts.

Preventing and combating chinchilla diseases

Any chinchilla farm must be constantly cleaned and periodically disinfected in order to provide your animals with a clean and healthy environment. Chinchilla is susceptible to diverse pathogens, such as: bacteria and fungi. As a result, it is far better to try preventing the emergence of such problems in your farm.
