Organic EchinaceaQuality Cage Crafters
1 oz bag of organic echinacea leaves and stems.
Also known as coneflower, this herb is often used in people and animals to support the immune system. Luckily it also makes a great chinchilla treat, so your chins can get an immune boost with every pinch! Feed no more than 1/2 tsp of echinacea 3 times a week for adult chinchillas. It can be sprinkled over chinchilla food, mixed with hay, or scattered to give your chin little bits to run and find.
Do not overfeed treats. Avoid giving treats to chinchillas under 6 months of age.
Both of our chinchilla love this stuff. They take it rigth from our palmsz tickling us with their soft tongues. They will also take one piece at a time from our fingers, they like it so much. Sometimes I sprinkle just a little here and there around their enclosure for enrichment. It does not take much dried Echinacea to make them happy, so I don't over do it and a little goes a looooong way. Glad to have an easy way to boost their immune systems.
