That's funny that you mention the chucks will notice habitat changes.. I agree 100%. While my Hispidus chucks are inside for the winter I clean and re-arrange their outside environments.. when they go back out, even if I try to put everything back just-so, they poke around and quite obviously disapprove!
.
My other chucks stay outside in winter and I take no action to protect them (like covering the cage) unless we'll see damp weather into the 40s for more than a day. They have zero troubles and have always come out ready to go around Valentine's day.
.
I think keeping, raising and breeding Chucks in a completely indoor environment is not so easy.. so my hat is off to those who can do that well.
.
Thanks!
