Default how many mealies?

Sonic does run on his wheel at night, I can't say for sure how much, but he usually poops 2-3 times on it a night. How many mealies should he get? I give him two, but I don't think that's enough.

Default Re: how many mealies?

It depends on his body shape and how well he keeps weight on. How are his weekly weighings? On average, for the teardrop shaped hedgies who have no trouble keeping weight on, people give 2-5 nightly.
For the runner shape type who fluctuates in weight and easily loses weight, they can be fed more. The most I've ever read on this forum is 30 but it takes time to slowly incease the numbers. But on average, I think most give about 10 or so, maybe more.
