$250 Girl - Baby gray girl, very sweet. Mom had a difficult birth with this little gal and she is missing the end of her tail and has some flaws that will prevent her from being shown. Regardless she will make a very cuddly family pet and is weaned and ready for a new home.
$400 Girl - Baby light ebony girl, just weaned. Very friendly and curious.
$400 Boy - Gray. This guy is top quality, very dense and plush. He is a very calm sort of lap chin. Potty trained.
$700 Boy - Tan White - very plush and sweet this big fluffy cottonball of a guy is ready for a new home. He is potty trained and very gentle, he is 8 months old now.
$800 Boy - Violet Baby. Just a cute little snuggle mouse, just weaned and available to go to a new home.
$800 Girl - Tov Mosaic vc girl, will be ready for a new home 6/11/22.
$400 Boy - Gray baby boy, will be weaned and ready for a new home 6/5/22.
$400 Girl - Baby Gray girl, very nice and dark and blue already. Would make a stunning pet or be perfect to grow out for a show line or to breed. Will be weaned 5/25/22
$800 Boy - Super cute little Mosaic baby boy. Will be weaned/ready for a new home 6/5/22, is the brother of the gray boy above and I would consider a discount if they went to a home together.
$1000 Boy - Black Velvet Angora baby. This is the gentlest little baby, he loves to snuggle in your shirt and chill. He is getting longer fur around his ears but I don't think he will get the super long body fur. He was just weaned and is available to a new home. He and the White RPA boy below are buddies, I will offer a discount if both go to the same pet home together.
$1500 Boy - Tov Mosaic RPA baby, just weaned. Not showing the super long fur yet this little guy's whiskers are the length of his body and his fur is 2x the length of the other babies. His family has both manes and ear tufts so those may or may not develop with age. He has the most wonderful personality and would make a great addition to someone's herd if they wanted some color or just as a very sweet pet.
$600 Man Black Pearl - This... is Casanova. He fancies himself the herd comedian and lover of all and is always on the lookout for his next prank. His favorite past time is distracting me and getting into trouble. He is *extremely* difficult to catch when he is being naughty. He also does some of the stupidest, funniest things you will ever see. He loves, LOVES to taunt humans and other chinchillas. Unfortunately his extremely high energy level and wanton ways make other chinchillas want to beat him up (this dude wouldn't even sit normal for a photo shoot, he's a hoot). For this reason I recommend him to a single chinchilla pet home. Trust me, you and your family are plenty of entertainment for this one. He is potty trained, two years old and was bred by Bobbie's Chinchillas.


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.

*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.
