Chinchilla Birthing

chin 1When chins mate, the expectation is 90% to get pregnant the female chin. Well, when they are mother-to-be, just like any other mom, maybe an animal or human, pregnancy is called ‘the half life risk taken’. The fact that there are two breathing living thing is in one body, the supply of food, water, nutrients and oxygen are supplied to mom and baby in wombs. It takes up to 118 days maximum gestation for a baby chinchilla to come out. The studies said that most gestation days are 111 days.

When they came out from mommy chin, their eyes are open, with distinguished fur color. As soon as they arrived, they keep themselves under their mother’s furry belly for mother-instinct reasons.

chin 2How they give birth is just like on human. It can be done normally and by c-section. In human, a supervision is needed, whether it is normal or through c-section, same with chins. They can give birth alone, especially if they are healthy. The urge to push the womb mentally and physically for chins are easy. They also experience labour, and the only sign you can see is them staying in a place, breathing deeply, belly looks stressed that they wanted to release something. This happens when delivering normally, no blood visual is common. For c-section, a vet is needed especially if the chin looks weak, and having a hard time to breathe, bleeding after pushing, and bleeding while in labor. Remember, both baby chinchilla and mommy chin should be alive and healthy, the owner is responsible in every chins pregnancies.
