Default NEW HEDGIE

Hey guys! I just bought a hedgie for myself, she is 7 weeks old, and may I ask what do I do in order to tame her? I already placed my shirt on her cage, because the breeder told me to do that so that she would get used to my scent. THANKS!
- Hoping for a fast reply!

Some 7 week olds are starting quilling and can seem a little grouchy take her out and let her sleep on you while you watch tv. Also treats help good luckp

Oh and is it fine to put her on an air- conditioned room? I live here in the Philippines and the temperature outside it about 32-35 degrees Celcius

Having your new hedgie in an air-conditioned room is OK, as long as the temperature in the cage is within the safe range for hedgehogs, which is 74* F - 79* F (approximately), which is 23.3* C - 26.1* C. Make sure you have a thermometer or two in the cage so you can make sure it isn't too cold in there.

Funny enough, the hedgehog room is the only room in the house that gets air conditioning in the summer in my home... we leave the door open so the cooler air hits the rest of the house too.

Like others have mentioned, make sure that it does not become too cold. You can always get a supplemental heating system for just the cage.
Also, ensure that the cooled air is not blowing directly into hedgie's cage. If it's in the way, either move hedgie's cage or use something to deflect the air.

do the flaky things move? or is she itching alot? if so might be mites or dry skin.

for a bath you use a mild baby soap with no alcohols, tea tree oil, or dyes or perfumes. lots of people use aveno oatmeal bath. you dont put it directly on the hegdehog you mix in a small amount of soap with the water.
