East Coast Chinchillas - PA Chinchilla Breeder

Breeder of healthy, friendly, quality mutation chinchillas

Welcome! I am a very small hobby breeder of quality chinchillas. I am located in Eastern Pennsylvania in the Lehigh Valley, about 20 minutes from the New Jersey border. I am approximately one and a half hours from New York City and an hour from Philadelphia. I am currently breeding for standards, brown velvets, tans, violet/violet wraps, pink white, white, sapphire, and white ebonies, but am going to be specializing in the various brown-colored mutations (beige, tan, tan and white, pink white, and brown velvet). My chins are from quality blood lines, including Ryersons, JAGS, Whitewoods, and Ritterspach. All of my babies are handled daily to ensure that they are used to human interaction. For information on available chin babies and adoption policies, please see the Nursery page. All chinchilla adoptions come with a free, one year membership to The Chinchilla Club! For details on what your membership will include, visit http://www.chinchillaclub.com/about.shtml. I am also a registered member of the MCBA.

I started with chinchillas a few years ago, and it all began with the little sweetie pictured above on the left (please forgive the plastic house, and never give your chins anything plastic... it is a very old picture and I was uneducated back then... it was removed once I learned more about proper chinchilla care). His name was Bean. He was a Christmas gift, and was a pet-store chinnie. He was the most amazing, sweet chinchilla, and he is the reason I fell in love with these amazing animals. Although he is no longer with me, he is always in my memory as I continue to love and care for the other chinnies I have adopted into my family. While I am breeding, all of my chins are, first and foremost, my pets and my friends.

SPECIAL OFFER!

I have a violet male who needs a very special person to care for him, and if I find such a person I will be giving him to that person for free. He is 6 years old, was raised on a very large chinchilla ranch, and is not well-socialized. Unfortunately he does have a tendency to bite in his current environment, which in chinchillas is always out of fear, not viciousness or aggression. He also fur chews a little bit on occasion, but this is on-and-off and may be more due to boredom than hereditary trait, and never gets worse than slightly shortening his fur on one side. Some chinchillas have a complete change of personality when placed into a new environment. In his current environment, he is surrounded by 40+ other chinchillas and may simply need a new home to mellow his personality. He may also just need someone who is willing to take the time and effort to work with him and socialize him. I am willing to give this male away for free to someone who is willing to help this male accommodate to people. I only ask that you submit an application explaining: 1 - why you are interested in adopting him, 2 - why you think you can help him, and 3 - what techniques you will use to help him become more comfortable with people. 

Please email your application to eastcoastchins@gmail.com if you are interested in this special boy.
