I feed mine 2-3 every week for treats. I found that feeding them everyday can upset their stomach... hope this helps

The amount depends on the individual hedgie. Some are ok with 1-5 per day, while some are only ok every few days, and some are ok with ~30 per day(the runners who need excess fat).

Start small, no more than 5 one day, then check poop the next day. If there are problems, you'll usually notice pieces of exoskeleton left undigested in the poop. This usually means that the number you gave the previous day was too much.

On average, most don't give over 5 per day, unless they have a runner that needs the extra fat.

normally you refrigerate them to slow them down (slows metamorphosis into pupae form) and feed them alive. frozen bugs are less nutritious
