Pregnant chinchillas require plenty of calcium in their diet so they have enough for their own needs and the baby chinchillas growing inside them.
Litters of 1-2 babies are most common and, as you can see from the x-ray of a pregnant chinchilla, larger litters would place a heavy demand on the mother chinchilla’s body.
Chinchilla babies are born fully furred.
