Edgehill Chinchillas is located just off the M40 motorway close to Warwick, Banbury, Leamington Spa and Stratford - upon - Avon. We are so called, because we look out to Edgehill where the first battle in the English Civil War took place between the Roundheads and Cavalier.

Although a small breeder (normally around 45 adults) , as well as the standard grey chinchillas, I also have many of the mutation colours including velvets (brown and black), whites (including pink whites), and beiges.

I have been keeping and breeding chinchillas since 1990 and I am always happy to give honest advise to potential new chinchilla owners. On average these wonderful animals live 8 - 12 years, so it is important before making a decision to ensure they are the right pet for you.

This website is not aimed at established knowledgeable breeders, but to those who are relatively new to chinchilla keeping and breeding (although you never stop learning) or anyone considering keeping chinchillas for the first time. It gives information (warts and all) on what you need to know and consider before taking on the responsibility of these wonderful animals. I would ask anyone considering purchasing a chinchilla from me (or anyone else) to carefully read the "Chinchilla Basics" section. I frequently find there is much misinformation about their dietary and housing needs even with existing owners. I want any chinchilla I am re-homing to go to a permanent loving home that understand its requirements.

Like all aspects of life, individual breeders have their own views. Although much of the content is recognised facts, inevitably elements reflects my own personal views and maybe biased to how I choose to keep my animals. I am not known for my brevity (for which I apologise) but have tried to impart information that I believe will benefit potential/existing owners. Obviously as with similar sites, no responsibility can be taken for its contents or misinterpretation of such.

I occasionally have animals for sale and visitors are welcome by appointment. This is without any sort of obligation to buy. I would much prefer potential new owners to visit and go away and think about it, rather than regret their decision at a later date. I am also available for any questions you may have.

Thank You
