Hoglets will go home when ready. They must be eating and drinking on their own and SOCIAL. They don't leave before and need not stay longer when they do. Handled early is best as they are wild. You need to pick up when we schedule your appointment. I do not keep them. If you cannot, then the baby moves on to the next family and you wait for the next litter.
We had our first sad story. A lady named Janae bought a hedgehog and the girls were over the top helpful. We got her cage, food, litter, just everything for her. She came out with her family of siblings and cousins and to make a long story short, she cheated the girls. They work so hard doing a good job. Sad. We had our first crook!!! MUST BE PAID WITH CASH AT TIME OF DELIVERY. This was about 3 years ago.
There are actually two color groups with 92 different colors. The white-bellied and Algerian, Color cannot be determined really until after 9 weeks. Their color is juvenile when born. After nine weeks you can determine the actual color and that will fade after a year old. The white-bellied hedgehog has smaller body, ears, and shorter nose. The two colors of white-bellied and Algerian have been bred and colors never mattered. They don't mix.
We feel Spikes is the best food on the market. I update myself every 3 months to judge and gain new info based on various articles on Hedgehogs. So we switched from one to this. I use 1st Crumbs with the babies. The ingredients start off with whole dried chicken meat, whole brown rice dried flour. It's has all that your hedgehog will need. The crude protein is 35%. Call if you want the info. We sell it here for your use and then tell you where to order. Good shelf life. 6mos.
Your little Hedgehog will love to eat. It's your job to feed appropriately! They get fat if you overfeed just like anything else. Give the right amount and a great squeak free wheel to run those miles at night! Adult weight should be 300-600 grams.
We did an enormous amount of research and diet is number one. Organic fresh and the right mix. One scoup a day and fresh water everyday.
I believe you have to be a little OCD to do this. Clean is good. Hedgehogs don't stink. If you clean the cage once a week.you will never smell any animal We buy the thick baby wipes and use a vinegar and water solution in a spray bottle. Easy as can be. If you can't handle small things like this then don't get a hedgehog or any animal for that matter. Our hedgehogs love the pockets I make and stay toasty warm in them. NO PLASTIC IGLOOS!!!!!!!
Your Hedgehog is small but very active. Sleep all day so when you try to play or want to spend your human daylight hours with them, they may not apppeciate you as much as you do them. Just remember going on a great vacation and you had to get up at 3AM to be at the airport. You know you're in for a wonderful week but the initial start is not so fun. That's your hedggie. Play with them anyway. The hiss they give is just a prayer that your aren't trying to eat them! Scoup them up gently.
Cages, cages, cages and more cages. What a headache. Store bought. Homemade and wonderful or homemade and a disaster. I am a firm believer after all my failures and wasted money to do it right the first time. Get what you invision and what you like that will work for you and your family. Close to 3' by 2'. Little less ok. Ours inside is 33" by 22". Have room for toys and things we think they need. Never saw a tiny cottage in the wild but we have them now! Ha
This can also be confusing. It was for us. We don't keep our house 75 degrees and up. Then you think of reptile lights, heating pads and other ideas. We decided to go with a safe room heater. It works perfect! With the fleece/sherpa rugs on the floor we are all fine. Lights that are radiant ceramic plus the hood they screw into and then hot to the touch just didn't work for us. Floor heater, problem solved. Keeps the room 72 degrees. I THINK OUR POCKETS WORK THE BEST.
