Default Healthy growth rate

Just out of curiousity has anyone tracked the rate their baby hedgie grew? I weighed Tommy two weeks ago and in that time he went from 245g to 287g. It seems like a lot but I don't think it's fat because he's very active at night. When he started quilling his skin got fairly dry and I didn't have any flax seed oil but I found somewhere on the boards that omega-3 from fish oil was ok too which I did have because I take it for my own skin. He loved it, it improved his skin and it made the transfer from the food from the breeder to the mix I put together seamless. I've cut the fish oil in half just in case.
