*Please see covid notes at bottom!

*To make the holidays easier I am listing everything that will be available between now and the end of January*
I will be out of town a lot so please be patient.

$400 Girl - Mosaic girl I have been holding for another breeder. She is outgoing and curious but does a lot of damage to her fur (looks like a sheep some days). We agreed she should find a pet home. She has been here for 3 months. Potty Trained.
$400 Boy - Gray boy that is super fast, super fun and a big spaz. Loves to play. Potty trained.
$450 Girl - Big gray sc vc (blue diamond carrier) girl. 8 months old, would make a great pet or addition to a blue diamond program. Potty Trained.
$700 Boy - Baby Black Velvet boy, just weaned and ready for a new home.
$800 Boy - Dark ebony boy, very plush, affectionate, sweet and gentle guy. This line produces some of the nicest temperaments you will find in a chinchilla. Half brother to the girl below, 6 months old. Potty Trained.
$1000 Girl - This stunning Tov ebony vc psc girl is one of the most affectionate in-your-pocket chinchillas I've had born this year. Loves to snuggle, loves to be scratched and groomed gently. Loves people and hands. She was shown and did well, she is not a year old yet so she is available until she is then she stays to be a mom. Potty Trained.
$800 Boy - Cute little Mosaic bdc boy that looks like a mouse. Just weaned and ready for a new home.
$800 Boy - Chocolate (dark tan) boy. This little guy looks like a chocolate chip! He did well at show but I don't have any girls for him. Will make a great pet or addition to a breeding program, he is 7 months old. Potty trained.
$1000 Boy - White Violet psc baby with really cool half brown/half blue eyes, he has a super cool quirky personality and is every bold and curious. He is 3.5 months old, potty trained and has great size and super plush fur, his mom was champion violet and dad took a first at show so he will be a stunner for sure!
$1000 Boy - Pure white with dark eyes and a very light dusting of brown on his tail this 6 month old guy is super sweet, super gentle and loves to do backflips and flip off of shelves. He is potty trained and has perfect manners. I kept him for show but his backflips make the fur down his back wavy so he can't be shown. (He is starting a flip in the 3rd photo) Potty trained.
$800 Boy - Pure Black ebony baby. Will be ready for a new home 11/21/22.
$800 Boy - Baby boy that will turn into a chocolate like the boy below between 6-12 months old. He will be available the first week of December.
$800 Boy - Baby White Ebony, possibly velvet (Tov). Very silly little guy, will be available 12/3/22
$800 Boy - Mosaic baby boy, may keep some spots, may end up white. Hard to tell with this line. Will definitely be very plush as he and his twin brother below are out of my show line. Available 12/23/22 but I may change the date if they need more time with mom.
$900 Boy - Mosaic baby boy, will most likely keep a few spots. Will definitely be very plush as he and his twin brother above are out of my show line. Available 12/23/22 but I may change the date if they need more time with mom.
$1000 Boy - White Violet baby boy will be weaned around the second week of Jan 2023.
$800 Boy - Baby Chocolate boy, will be weaned the end of Jan 2023

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 up a chinchilla. All of my baby chinchillas are played with daily though they are still very energetic and wiggly.

*Due to covid I am meeting people outside. If you want a chinchilla, let me know which one and I will do my best to describe him/her to you. I am not allowing people to handle them then hand them back and leave - chinchillas can get the respiratory part of covid just like any other mammal and I do not want to infect the rest of my pets.

Due to the intense Texas heat please understand that I may rush you to put the chin (especially babies) directly into your vehicle so they can stay cool. I am happy to stand and chat as long as you like but they need to stay below 75 degrees.

Thank you for your understanding.

Current payment methods are Cash (preferred), Apple Pay or Venmo: SunsetChinchillas. If you use Venmo and pay as services and goods I am required to charge applicable sales tax of 8.25%.

I will hold a chinchilla for 7 days with a non-refundable deposit of $50. This counts towards the total purchase price. After 7 days the chinchilla will be made available on the website again.

I do work full time so please be patient. This is a hobby I greatly enjoy at my home, not a business.

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, previous customers have been quoted $20-$400 depending on distance.

Once you find a transporter you can ask if they provide carriers - many do. You can also have one shipped to me, please include a water bottle if the chinchilla will be on the transport more than 12 hours. The transporters usually contact me to schedule a pickup time 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 and on long trips they chew right through those carriers. Bunnyrabbit.com Makes metal carriers. Any small wire cage with wire spacing 1" x 1" or less is acceptable.

What determines a chinchilla's price?
It comes down to how keen I am on the chinchilla leaving. Sometimes they start high and drop in price if they aren't turning out nice enough to show. Sometimes they turn out so nice I decide to keep them.
-Show Quality
-Have they escaped and/or let others out recently
-Gender - chinchillas always produce more boys than girls so I almost always have a lot of boys for sale.
