Buy your hay rack for your chinchillas easily at DRD Knaagdierwinkel®. For a hay rack for your Chinchillas you are in the right place in our Chinchilla webshop. Hay is a very important part of the diet for chinchillas. The hay is best presented in a hay rack. That way it stays together and the animals cannot urinate over it.
A good hay rack must be made in such a way that the animals can get between the bars with their muzzle part, but this usually only works very well with vertical bars (because most animal noses are not that wide, but they are high / long). However, the animals should not be able to put their heads through, otherwise their heads could be trapped between the supports. If you see that the head of your animal can pass through the bars, take the rack out of the enclosure and choose a rack with a smaller distance between bars. For chinchillas, a distance between the bars of roughly 2.5-3 cm is recommended. For young animals, a smaller spacing should of course be chosen.
Wooden hay racks are very beautiful and have a natural look. However, it can happen that the chinchillas also nibble on the rack in addition to the hay. A metal, or in particular an aluminum hay rack lasts a lot longer. There are many different types of hay racks available. Each hay rack can be used in its own way. For example, one hay rack can be hung and the other can be placed. It is also a nice idea to give the animals a fixed horn, so one that attaches to the bars or the wall and another to hang for extra challenge and exercise.
