To be honest, I never get the people who don't want to buy a male hedgehog because of the boy time. It's totally normal. I think the poop is far worse.
I have a male and yes, he does it. There's dried stuff in his fur every day (and in his cuddle bag). I couldn't care less. I just give him a bath when needed and wash his cuddle bags. And when they are having boy time you don't even really see that much. They just arch their back in a funny way, they are actually still kinda discreet when they're doing it out in the open. He went through his "horny teenager stage" but when he got older he turned it down a bit so he usually only does it in his cage right now.

Well.. it's good that it doesn't bother you since you have a boy that does it. LOL Different strokes for different folks and all. I'm good with poop, I've had guinea pigs poop in my hand, and I've changed a lot of dirty diapers. Just not sure how I'd deal with the other... but mainly it's because I have 3 daughters, and I'd just rather not deal with the questions. But if I end up going down there this weekend (visiting the breeders and the babies on Saturday) and falling in love with a boy, then a boy it shall be, and we'll just hope he's real private.... :P

I laughed so hard at what jholstein said...It's true, I guess it's a good thing you have all daughters!
I say get whichever hedgehog seems to be the friendliest. Don't worry about the fact that it is a boy or a girl. Worse case scenario you get to talk to your daughters about the birds and the bees - it might be a good ice breaker!
Good luck whatever you decide,

Well the fresh poop smells, this is just a bit of dried stuff. :P And like I said, you don't really see that much so it's probably fine for your daughters. And what's wrong with explaining it? I don't know how old they are but I've always been around animals as a kid and they have sex and it's just normal.

I used my hedgehog to teach my 9 year old boy (who incidently also enjoys boy time ) about the birds and the bees. I found using an animal to explain why we do private things in private and how "breeding" works was SO much less traumatic on us both.
