Default 2 male at home!!

Hi! First of all, sorry for my english. I'm from Spain and we don't have any hedgehog forum...

Here is my question: I just got 2 male hedgehogs. They're 2 weeks old and they are living in the same cage. So far, everything goes fine but I read that It's not good to have 2 male hedgehog living together because they will have fightsfor the "bed", food, etc... The woman who gave them to me, told me that if they grow together they wont have any problem because they will be used to live together... I don't know what to do, I want them to live together (it would be easier for me) but I'm sacared to be working and go back home and find something I dont want to find.

Does anybody have 2 male living together? Or does anybody know if they can live together like the woman told me?

Regards!!!

From what i kmow you should never house two males together. Even tho they are happy right now they would probably fight in the future.Keep in mind i am not a proffesional or a vet.Good luck with your hedgies

Personally I wouldn't even try to house males in the same cage.

Just to clarify, how old are they? You said two weeks which is 14 days old, did you mean 2 months?
