Default Hedgehog stool?

My hedgehog's name is Derp, like the internetmeme. Lol, anyways ive had him about 3 weeks, maybe, almost a month. I dont even know, but he's about 9 weeks old, and I've never seen hedgehog crap before so I'm like being all paranoid. His is like toothpaste kind of, and lately the color has been weird i suppose, its light green brownish, and theres weird kind of chunks in there like orange or yellow. The "chunks" are about crumbsized. K, now I feel disgusting sitting here at 5 am and talking about hedgehog sh*t. Lol.

He also sleeps alot, he doesnt wake up unless I hwake him up and when i put him back in his cage he stays awake for like 1 min or 2 and eats and drinks then crawls back under his blanket I've given him.

What kind of food is he eating, and also do you give him any treats and if so, what?

Hedgehogs do poop a lot for their size especially babies. Like toothpaste is normal, the colour you are describing isn't.

you might try slowly switching to a better quality food (there's a list of good and bad food on here somewhere). also the sleeping a lot is normal, he is a baby that's what they do lol. just like a human baby eat, sleep, and poop is about all they do. once they get older then they take less naps (wish it was that way for me, the older i get the MORE naps i take lol).
