When it comes to giving your chin a dust bath, there are many different things you can use to put the dust in. Make sure that it is large enough for your chin to be able to roll around freely. You can use a glass or metal baking pan. A glass fish bowl (barrel type) can also be used. One of our favorite bowls to use is a 5 quart stainless steel dog food bowl. Keep in mind that any time you use an open bowl more dust will be in the air. You can buy the plastic bath houses that many stores have. These are ok to use as long as you only have a single chin and make sure your chin does not chew it. A chin will roll around to take his bath and if he starts to nibble the plastic bath house, you know he is done and you need to take the bath out of the cage. There is also a chinchilla bath that is ceramic and in the shape of a chinchilla. These are very cute, BUT are way too small for a chinchilla to take a dust bath in. If you really want to get one of these for your chin, use it for his hay (as shown above) or just leave it empty because many chins like to just hang out in them. No matter what you decide to use for a dusting bowl, make sure it will fit in the door of the cage. You do not want to leave it in the cage all the time. Only put it in the cage when your chin will be bathing.
Some chins will not use a bath house, but want an open bowl for their bath. If you have more than one chin who will be bathing at the same time, a long baking pan would be your best bet so the chins will have plenty of room. No one wants to wait to take their bath and two chins will not fit comfortably in a bath house. A 9" x 13" baking pan is perfect for two or more chins to take a bath and even the 5qt stainless bowl works well for two.
