This business started with watching a documentary on African Pygmy Hedgehogs with my two youngest entrepreneurial grand daughters Hannah and Ava. They thought this would be a fun business and they wanted to be a part of raising tiny hedgehogs. They have experience with my Cavalier King Charles Spaniels that I have bred for decades. They have been a huge part of the care and socialization of all my puppies and dogs. They do all fun things and not so fun things like picking up poop and keeping things clean and tidy. They are animal lovers and patient and kind girls. Hedgehogs are wonderful pets and we are the breeders. We sell healthy baby hedgehogs. We do it right or to the best of our ability. Ours actually see an Exotic Vet and given approval to breed.
Our Herd prefix is CHAK.
We do not do commercial breeding. This is a serious commitment by my partners and myself. We provide a loving home and attention to their every need. We have African Pygmy Hedgehogs in many colors. We love all animals and have committed to give a percentage of our profits to St Jude's Cancer Research and to Heifer International to help fight world hunger. We believe we should be the best we can be and also connect to our community and the world. We know we will do our little part in helping. Check out the site www.heifer.org, In no way do either of the companies endorse us. We just endorse them and want to do our small part.
If we breed and it does not take we cannot control that. I have taken deposits don't want to disappoint anyone when a breeding does not take. I have decided to wait till babies are on the ground and then announce them. I will give you a date for pick up and you need to pick up within 3 days of that with appointment. We do not keep them for you. If the timing is off for you then you go to the next litter. Bonding takes place young. It's no benefit to keep them longer, They need their owners to bond with. You can then pay for the baby or wait and pay when you pick up. Bring CASH ONLY. You can buy everything you need at pickup and pay cash or Zelle. We have silent wheels, wheel covers, pockets, litter pans, toys, litter, food, playpens, tunnels, houses, pads for the bottom of the cage, feed and waters bowls, and etc. All of the babies are so adorable. There are so many colors and you never know what you will get. We can't even touch the cage for two weeks so we never know what we have until then. We can provide a full proper set up if you if you like. So many safe and unsafe toys and such. The girls and I have researched thoroughly to do the best we can. We have made enough mistakes so we can share only the successes with you. Ha! Learn something new everyday. We think we have it down. Such a minimal care and unusual pet for the right family You have to get the cage and I recommend amazon Midwest Deluxe Critter Nation for $124.99 . It's a beautiful metal cage on wheels. It's for a ferret but works perfect for your hedgehog. Throw away the second shelf and any plastic that comes with it. Your hedgehog cannot use it. You can also get a plastic tub as long as it is 2'x3'. They need the space for the wheel.
We make the most beautiful "pockets" priced excellent. Ours are around 12x12 so don't fall for the expensive 6x8 or 10. They are made beautiful. We give you a transport carrier to take your baby home. Heggies love to snuggle inside. Warm and their little hide out.
This is 2020 and we have been doing this awhile and really love our niche. We are rated 97% as the best pet website. I don't know how we did that. In fact we didn't. You did. We just love these babies and have really become attached. Hannah and Ava were so young when we started and now one is in middle school. They are responsible loving children with a focus on what's right in their world and treat their family of hedgehogs with love and devotion. It's hard to do the ugly stuff and they breeze through it with total dedication. You will receive a handled with love baby from our home to yours. They will be socialized and eating dry hard food and drinking water. As babies, they are a hit and miss on the litter pan but will be litter trained if you continue and use our advice. Any grumpy babies you will be made aware of. Some take more time than others.
In the beginning we wasted so much money and made mistakes. I WAS ASHAMED SINCE I WAS IN CHARGE OF MY GRANDDAUGHTERS BUSINESS. We have gotten wiser. ha
We offer absolutely EVERYTHING you could possibly need to accommodate your new baby. From Food, toys, pockets, houses, tunnels, feeding dishes, wheels and more. GIRLS WILL HEGGIE SIT WHILE YOU ARE ON VACATION. THERE IS A FEE IF YOU NEED THIS SERVICE.
Can't find a better set up of quality items than we offer fairly. All our stuff is quality and some handmade.
GOT A NEW BABY TO LOVE
We met a lot of fantastic loving families. Thank you!
Love, Love, Love is in the
Dad is very dark. King Ragnar.
They most likely will. They all change color a little.
Mom is protective. I'm amazed she is so gentle and that the babies make it. So many prickles.
Hoglets are so darn cute. Cannot handle them yet.
Three of the four we think we have.
JUST A CUTE PICTURE.
Just use a big flat river rock and put it in your bathroom sink. Fill a little like it was for a turtle. Do not cover the rock. Use our bamboo toothbrush to clean their toes that may have poop collected on them and gently stroke their backs for bonding. Dry with a wash cloth or face towel that you bought for your hedgehog only.
Cages are priced all over the place. This depends totally on your budget. You can start from the low end with plastic and go to the top which is metal. It must be 2'x3' and no less for your baby to live in. If you cannot get the cage right please do not buy a hedgehog. Get a hamster instead. I just believe in doing things right.
THIS IS A GREAT GUY. HE'S A PHOTOGRAPHER AND ARTIST. HERE IS LENNY. I LOVE HIS INSTAGRAM
Fun picture off the web.
This is me. I'm a great cook and lousy baker!
Spaghetti sauce is our favorite but we do love cherry and blueberry jam.
