Default Quillson not Eating Much Kibble

Hey guys. Quillson has been doing good, but lately he's not really eating much of his kibble at all. He has plenty of light and its kept warm where he is. Quillson is wheeling away most of the night and he'll eat mealworms and apple when he's out. The kibble we have for him right now is broken up and we're getting a more solid kibble soon for him. He was eating almost an entire bowl everyday for awhile and it seemed he grew some at that time. Now he's eating just a little bit of the dry kibble. I'm kinda clueless here. He doesn't seem like he's ill or anything. He's acting normal other than the kibble thing. Drinks good, wheels like mad, bright eyed, etc. Is it because he wants a more solid kibble or is there something wrong here?
Quillson is about a month old so I wondered if this was a baby thing or do they lose baby teeth.

I am confused. You say he is a month old but didn't you get him about a month ago? That would make him close to 3 months old. I am guessing he does not like the broken up kibble. He needs regular kibble now. Have you been weighing him (in grams)? He should still be gaining a little at this time.

Oops. Sorry about that. We've had him from about a week from Thanksgiving. I'm going to get him the bigger kibble asap. I boiled some chicken and I'm going to feed him a little of that.

Looks like the kibble was the issue. He was eating the bigger pieces of kibble so I'm taking care of this. He loved the chicken and didn't heistate to eat it at all. Santa Quills left him a teddy bear and a little bed for Christmas which he loves. I feel like such a hedgie newbie at the moment but its been awhile so I'm sorta in a way relearning stuff again.

Great! I am glad to hear he is eating better.

Hahaha, would you only want to eat cookie crumbs?
