Default Questions to ask breeder at visit

So I'm visiting the breeder on Saturday to pick out my hedgie and I was wondering what are some good questions to ask her? I won't be bringing my hedgie home yet because they aren't old enough.
Here are some I've thought of so far...
What kind of food are they eating?
What temperature are they kept at?
Have they tried any food other than kibble?

What kibble is he/she on? (if possible see if you can get a small bag)

If you haven't already covered the topics of health guarantee's and pedigrees that would be good too.
Maybe what kind of bedding are they on? Even if you are switching to fleece, it might be good to know what they were on as babies in case any sneezing or skin irritations show up so you can rule out their old bedding?
