About Us

How We Started

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.

Get on the waiting List now! Later we will have a few more.

Our beautiful babies are priced reasonable to the right home. All of the babies are 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" in all sizes and they are made beautiful.  We give you a tiny starter pocket to take home. You can purchase larger ones if you like and of course reasonable.  They are soft and lined.   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. Your $60.00 deposit can be made through VENMO by my name, Charlene Reed, or phone 303-332-9074 or email char0451@comcast.net.  You need to send an email to me with your name, address, phone and what you want.  I will NOT contact you if you don't.  NO REFUNDS on deposit.

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.

You buy a 2'x3' cage

 Cages are all over the place with

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.
