Default Re: Hedgie Not Gaining Weight?

The size of the parents doesn't always translate to the offspring, my smallest male's babies were always about twice the size of him, no matter what female I bred him too. Another male I had that was fairly big, his babies always were smaller as adults...it was weird. Does your hedgies side seem sunk in? looking down from above does he look like | | or ( ) or ) ( . The first two shapes are good the last one would be underweight.
