Whether you call it a house, a nest box, a hide-a-way, or whatever, a chinchilla needs a box. Our chin boxes not only provide a chin with a secure place to sleep, they also provide something to climb up onto and, probably most importantly, they provide a chin with something safe to chew on. As you know, chinchillas must constantly chew in order to keep their teeth worn down to a proper length. What makes our chin boxes superior to others is that they contain NO NAILS OR SCREWS.
All of our chin boxes are made with thick, long lasting 3/4" unfinished pine. The boards are joined together using FDA approved non-toxic glue and wooden biscuits. As a result, our chin boxes are very strong, but more importantly, they contain no metal that can chip a tooth. And, as the wood is chewed down, there are no exposed nails or screw heads to snag the chin as it jumps onto and off of the box.
Each chin box requires cutting many slots to hold the wooden biscuits. It is more expensive and takes longer to build a box this way, but it's worth it. We leave both ends open so that the chin can come and go with ease. Also, being open on both ends makes it easier to clean the box as well.
Our chin boxes are available in four different sizes: Our chin boxes are available in four different sizes:

Note: We try to keep a small number of each size in stock and ready to ship. However, please don't be surprised if we inform you that there will be a 2 or 3 day delay if we need to build one for you. (It takes at least 24 hrs. for the glue to dry.)
