Default Green poop!? Help!

Okay, so today I finally went to get my baby from the breeder. The couple who sold him to me were very nice, I saw the parents and the brothers, they were all healthy and very playful, and there cages were pretty well kept and showed no evidence of any type sickness the hedges may have. Mine even pooped on my hand, and the poop was brown, if not a bit soft. But now, I'm afraid he might have gotten too cold during the trip, we took a bit longer than I'd thought, and the green liquid poop might be a result of that? Or maybe it's just nervousness?

Any thoughts? Please? I'm really worried, this is my first hedgie

It's okay, green poop is usually just a sign of stress. Since you just brought him to a brand new place with new smells, new people, new everything, he's just stressed out. The green poop won't hurt him, nor will the stress. Just give him time to settle in tonight and go slowly with him. Don't introduce him to a bunch of things at once. The green poop should clear up in a couple of days, as he settles in.

It's completely normal, no worries! :] Green poop happens from stress, and is very common when a hedgehog is brought to a new home - especially when it's a baby. You might find that only some of his poops are green and others are normal. It typically lasts 2-3 days at most. If you're planning to begin transitioning your baby to a new food, I would suggest waiting to start that until the green poop clears up.

Congrats on your new baby!

Was the poop actually liquid? If so, that isn't necessarily normal... And if it was diarrhea, you need to keep a close eye on it, as dehydration can happen quickly in such small animals.
