Default It has been one week since surprise babies... (New Poster!)

So, my new hedgehog gave birth a week ago today, thanks to all the great advice I read in the forums, I was able to know I had to leave them alone so the new mama doesn't feel threatened.

As of today, while it has been tempting to lift up the igloo and peek in, I still have no idea how many babies she had, or if all of them have survived. Freya (mamas name) still eats and drinks every night. I have not seen any babies outside the igloo, or any blood or anything like that either.

On top of that, everyday I have still heard some light chirping coming from the cage, so I know there is at least one baby still alive. Needless to say, I am excited, and cant hardly wait for the next few days to go by, so I can finally take a peek and see what is what.

The general consensus says I should wait 10 to 14 days, so I will probably wait the full 2 weeks, just to be safe.

I have one question, what are the chances that Freya's personality will change now that she is a mother, she was really laid back and friendly during the first week we had her, before she gave birth.I really hope she retains that personality, or are they prone to change?

Our Freya
