Default Breeders in Texas?

I'm not sure if this is in the right spot, so feel free to move if it's not.
I am wanting to get another hedgie in the next couple of months and I'm wondering if anyone knows anything good/bad about Mrs. Tiggywinkles in Dallas or Janda Exotics in San Marcos. Also, if anyone knows any reputable breeders in the Centralish Texas area that would be great! Thanks for your help!

I don't know about the first one but do know a few things about Janda's. Janda's was really hard to get a hold of. I went to San Antonio a little over a year ago and tried contacting them prior and during the trip to see if I could come and check out the hedgies. I was planning on getting one and after all the calls and emails didn't get any reply. After I got back home I was glad it didn't work out because a few people ended up having a few issues with hedgehogs they got there . If you do a search in the top right hand corner you will get to see in more detail but I think off the top of my head was issues with mites and URI's. There was something else too that I can't remember, I'm wanting to say Giardia but can't say 100%.

the lack of good quality breeders near san antonio led me to owning rescues only. (janda's sells to pet stores in town.)

I agree not to buy from Jandaexotics they are wholesalers, that alone turns my stomach.

Thanks for all the responses! It's good to know about Janda's. As far as shipping, it's more money than I would like to spend and more stress for the hedgie, and I also would like to meet my hedgie before getting her this time around. If only y'all were close enough for me to drive, as it would be nice to buy from someone on the forum.

So I emailed Mrs. Tiggywinkles and it's against her policy to adopt out an un-spayed female to a home that has a male already. Is this a common policy (meaning will I probably encounter this with another breeder)? I would adopt another rescue, but I would really like a baby this time around Thanks for any help y'all can offer!

I don't know any breeders that due that first off I could be wrong but its a risky thing to due. I would probably think about getting one shipped. She just didn't want you to breed her. I know a lot of breeder that will ask you not to breed without asking for permission. But I never heard of that. When I sell a female I ask them to ask me if they decide to breed but really that didn't mean they will its impossible to control people from doing what they want. If I were you I would look around or think about getting one shipped

Seems a bit excessive but I can understand her protectiveness from what I understand there are a lot of benefits to a spay on a female which can reduce many prominent cancers. I could be wrong her though

If that's a problem then you could get another male hedgehog
