Chinchillas in the wild usally live in packs with around 100 chinchillas per Pack. In captivity they may live together but when you put them together you have to go slow. There are many ways of doing this, one of the ways I have found most useful is to put there cages next to each other and then slowly put them together and watch them play if they fight separate them imediently. Do this a few times and your chins should get along. I'm not positive about degus.
