Hey there! As with any good animal care, if an animal doesn’t want to do something, they’ve pretty much made up their mind about it! It sounds to me that your girls are more exploratory hedgies, so keep letting them roam around in hedgehog proofed rooms! And definitely try various enrichments; sometimes I let Christina run around in my room in the dark after I place kibbles around the room, or I’ll hide her diet one day around her house so she has to find it throughout the night. If your girls don’t like wheels, it’s not the end of the world. Wheels are recommended because of ease and general acceptance, but every hedgie is different! This just means that you’ll have to make sure they get their exercise elsewhere. As long as your girls are healthy and not showing major behavior changes, it doesn’t sound like you have much to worry about!
Hope this helps 🙂
