$500 - White Ebony violet carrier, poss Tov, pos sapphire carrier boy. His front paws are black and his back ones are white. He has a very cute round head but not sure if he is Tov yet, his spots are getting darker as he ages. He has a lot of ebony showing in his fur and looks like a little thundercloud in person.
$400 - Beautiful dark Violet sapphire carrier girl, likely carries ebony as her sister is a very dark wrap.
$300 - Dark Tan female from Ritterspach (5R9). Potty trained. Good mom, has produced and raised three beautiful babies for me.
I currently have a couple of cages for sale, both two story ferret nation cages. One is assembled and has some rust at the connectors, it is $100. The other is disassembled and is missing wheels and a pan, it is $60. These cages are not baby proof. I have switched to the Critter Nation style which are. Pick up only.


You are welcome to contact me at chinpoo@sunsetchinchillas.com or call/text (318) 405-1163 to set up a time to visit and pick out a chinchilla.

Current payment method is cash only. In certain cases I will accept a check - if the chinchillas are being transported across country but it must be received two weeks before the chinchilla leaves and it must clear the bank first.
I do not hold chinchillas unless you are shipping out of state and a deposit must be received within 7 days.

I am available to meet by appointment on the weekends or after 6PM during the week.

All chins must be picked up in person or you can arrange a transporter. Examples of the transporters people use are USHIP Pets and Citizen Shipper. It is up to the buyer to arrange and pay for these services.


Once you find a transporter you can either ship your own carrier and water bottle to me, or purchase online at Walmart and I will pick it up at the local store. The transporters usually contact me to schedule a pickup time (weekday evenings after 6PM or weekends) and we will go from there. Carriers need to be hard sided cat carriers, or if it is more than a 3 day trip they MUST BE ALL METAL. Chinchillas eat plastic and when they get bored on long trips they chew right through those carriers. Ryerson Chinchilla Makes what is considered the best metal chinchilla carriers in the industry. Any small wire cage with wire spacing 1" x 1" or less is acceptable.
