Default Babies

My hedgie brilla had 5 healthy babies on February 7th and I was wondering when it should be fine to take them out of the cage?

They'll be about 4.5 weeks old now, so if you mean handling them, you can do that after 2 weeks, if mom reacts well. If you mean as far as moving them into their own cage, that has to wait until they're weaned and eating kibble on their own, usually around 6 weeks. You don't want to wait longer than 6-7 weeks to separate male babies from mom, since they'll start to become sexually mature and will attempt to mate with mom or sisters.

If the mom is fine with you handling the babies, you should be giving them daily handling. It's important for their socialization.
