Very kind of you to two to take care of those hedgehogs To clarify a little - they can't become domesticated. A wild animal, at best, can only become "tame", but domestication is process which takes years of breeding and is something very different from simply "taming" a wild animal. Even the pet African pymgy hedgehogs aren't fully domesticated. Yours will still be wild animals, and be better off outside. If you can, I would recommend contacting a local hedgehog rescue (even though they're considered a pest in NZ, there are rescues) to ask for advice and whether to release them or not, or if they know a good area to release them (like an enclosed garden, if they can't go fully back to the wild). If you have such a garden yourself it might be an option too.
