Default Treats- What do give the good fuzballs :)

Hey folks,
I been curious. What do people give their chinchillas as treats? I know that sugar is not good for them, nor is screwing with their diet suddenly. Gotta keep those stomachs happy. So what do people treat their chin's with?

My guys get rose hips, rose petals, a cheerio, old fashion oats, and various dried herbs. If you want a good idea of safe herbs for treats check out Fuzzies Kingdom, there is a good list as well as feeding instructions and what each are good for (vitamins, immune system, digestion, etc).

the other main option iv found is twigs. They need to be the right kind and grown and prepared properly so you cant just go pick them off the ground. But its good for there teeth and there is no real limit you have to worry about daily for them.
