Default how much do they eat?

On average, how much do baby hedgehogs eat or how much are they supposed to? Do you pretty much keep the bowl full all the time since they are young?

Default Re: how much do they eat?

Hedgehogs are free-fed at any age, but counting the kibble first is suggested so you can monitor that they are indeed eating and if there is a drop off in appetite.

How much varies on each hedgehog, mine are adults and eat 1 1/2 T of dry kibble. I could cut it down to 1 1/4 as there's usually some leftover but I don't want them to run out on a hungry evening.
