May I ask why you would want a female instead of a male?

i dont have anything against males its just because my other one is female it would make it easier because i could have them out of their cages at the same time. if it were a male i could never do that because i dont want them breeding. i may just give in and get a male.

As far as I know I'm the only registered breeder in Alberta right now but I live up by the NWT border so way to far away for you. I've had alot of people calling from the Calgary area looking for a hedgie and unfortunately I don't know of any breeders down there.

i know i wish someone down here did. seems the only place to get one is a pet store or to ship one from b.c . i dont want to get one shipped because for me it seems to risky. Theres also a farm in Vulcan ive looked at but only males.

found out might actually be able to get the petstore near my house to order one for me. i guess they might still be shipping it then but hopefully itll be safer then a private breeder sending it on a plane or something.

I'd rather get one from a breeder than a pet store... And with pet stores they often say they are female but they are actually male. And if you get a female from a pet store you have a high risk of getting a pregnant hedgehog with possible inbred babies.

well as for the male female thing i can tell the difference. And as for the it being pregnant and inbred what makes you think this? I was under the impression that she would be getting it from a breeder?

It's not the same breeder. These are for profit only, and really don't care about the health of them.
