I agree with the previous post, pesticides would be a real concern and I don’t see how you could ensure the insects wouldn’t have come across any. Another concern would be lungworms, which many wild hedgehogs in Europe contract from eating slugs. I believe the slugs have the lung worm parasite in them but you would want to look into if that is true in your area. Thirdly keeping two hedgehogs together would be a concern, if they are male/female they will wind up breeding and if they are male/male or female/female they could wind up fighting and hurting each other. Ideally they should be kept alone.
