Unhappy Mama hedgehog trying to find a way out of home

My mother hedgehog acts very restless, she is pacing and standing on top her hidey home. She has taken her babies from the nest( a plastic bucket) and they are out in the open. The hoglets are 3 1/2 weeks old. What is she doing?? I am worried that she has stopped feeding them... Is it that she is teaching them something? Thanks.

Default Re: Mama hedgehog trying to find a way out of home

Has anything been disturbed or changed in the cage or in the room where her cage is located? Anything added, removed, any new scents or something she might perceive as a threat? It sounds to me like she's decided that it's not a safe place and she needs to move them, but I'm not a breeder, so this is just from lots and lots of reading from the experienced breeders. I'm sure one of them will be along soon to offer more advice, and more information on the situation can help them do that too!

Does she have the babies all together? or spread all around? It sounds like something has stressed her. Hopefully if you leave her alone she'll settle down.
