Updated October 14th 2019


Show season is now over for me, I had a very successful show last weekend and picked up some new girls/show lines so I have several proven breeders available as well as some newly weaned babies.

$200 each, currently housed together but can be separated.Young gray brothers, mostly potty trained. They are ready for a new home.
$220 - Baby Gray boy, just weaned. Not potty trained.
$300 - Baby beige boy, just weaned. Not potty trained. Brother to the gray boy above and are currently living together.
$300 - Huge ebony girl, very sweet. Great mom out of my top ebony show lines. Potty Trained.
$300 - Pure white mosaic girl, very sweet and quiet sort of gal. Has been a great mom. Potty trained. Her were damaged from her mom at birth and don't bother her, she looks and feels like a fluffy white cloud and loves to chill.
$300 - Another of my lovely experienced mosaic ladies, this one has a lot of dignity and prefers attention on her terms. She is a bit more leery of strangers but very active and a lot of fun once she warms up. She has been a great mom.
$500 - Baby pure black ebony boy. It is very rare that I have an all shiny black baby available. This little guy is so soft and plush. Out of my top show lines (nephew to the huge girl above). He is now weaned and ready for a new home.
$500 - Baby mosaic, just weaned. This little guy is out of my top show line. His dad took class champ, his mom reserve and his sister took phase champ at the last show. He will likely keep his markings, his dad did but all mosaics have the possibility of getting lighter or darker with age.
$500 - Stunning mosaic gal. This is one of my favorite girls from this year, she is a total Diva and really fun to take photos of. She is 7 months old and would make a great pet or breeder. Unfortunately I can't keep them all!


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.
