Default Switched food, weird poop?

My hedgie is about 6 months old. About 2 days ago, I switched him to a new kibble. He was eating the Hedgehog Diet dry food but I switched him to the Rachel Ray Nutrish dry cat food. Its macronutrient percentages are very similar to his old food. I originally tried mixing the old food and new food to get him used to it, but he likes the new food so much that he would just leave the pieces of the old food in the bowl completely untouched. He did the same thing again today. I have noticed that he’s still pooping, but it’s a bit less. It’s coming out in slightly smaller pieces and it seems to be a bit darker. I know switching foods is an adjustment for him, but when should he be back to normal? How do I know when to worry
