Default Hedgehog having green poop after changing homes.

Hello, I recently brought home a 5 month old hedgie. I've had him for about three days now. I've kept him on the same diet, all that. He's been eating and drinking. As of a few minutes ago he has green poop. It was kinda gummy. Is this because of the stress of changing homes, or is he sick? I've taken him out everyday to get some hedgie/owner bonding time. I just wanna make sure he's okay.

probably just from stress, but keep an eye on him for the next week or so. hopefully it will clear up in a couple days. if he stops eating and drinking and wheeling there may be more going on there. what color of green is it?

It's a dark green. He still eats and drinks. I'm not sure about his wheel. He does that really late at night. And he's been sleeping a lot too. The temp in the room has always been between 78-81 F.

trust me more than likely you will know if he is using his wheel even if it's when you are asleep. not always, but most mornings all my wheels have a lot of urine and feces on them so it's pretty obvious they were used.

everything else sounds great i'd just keep an eye on him. 81 is a little high though i'd try to stick closer to the 78.

5 months is still a baby so it's not unusual that he sleeps a lot. they are also nocturnal animals which means they sleep during the day and are awake at night so he's probably awake the most when you're sleeping.

Parts of me think the room isn't actually 81, I think the thermometer is being stupid. I'm about to get a second one to make sure.
But thank you for the help!
