1. Not every hedgehog will anoint or anoint very often. Also, things can trigger it. (new smells, new foods, certain foods/smells)
2. Your other thread said you've had her for a week...she hasn't been eating for a week except egg?
3. Does she know how to wheel? Some hedgehogs don't get the hang of it until a little while.

What's the temperature in her cage? Do you have a heating set up for her cage? Is she getting at least 12-14 hours of light during the day? It's best to do that with a lamp for or near the cage, not with outside light (which is getting shorter now).

She might be running on the wheel and just not pottying on it - try putting a pinch of flour on the bottom of the wheel to see if she's run on it & just been discreet.

Keep an eye on the food - if she doesn't eat again tonight, it starts getting a bit more worrisome & I would get some things around in case you need to syringe-feed her - Syringes (best are the 1-, 3-, or 5-ml needle-less syringes you can get from your vet or from a human pharmacy, with diabetics supplies) and baby food (chicken or turkey, sweet potato, peas, carrots are all popular).
