Hedgehog Chirping (Video)
 
I decided to video record my hedgehog chirping while wheeling for the ENTIRE night last night. The video is all black unfortunately but if you wait 20 seconds into the video you will be able to hear him chirp every few seconds. It is adorable.

Sounds like a Comfort wheel and a chirping hedgie cute!
If you put vaseline on the spindle of the comfort wheel the noise will lessen or you could try a hair scrunchie around the spindle.

No that noise isn't the wheel. I have tested it. The wheel rattles but not squeak. Thats him making that noise lol

the wheel would only squeak when the hedgie is on it, because of the added weight, you trying to make it squeak wouldn't work. Comfort wheels are famous for squeaking, and yes it does almost sound like chirping.

You may be right, I am not ruling it out. I have listened closely and it sounds like that noise is coming from the hedgie. He could be on the wheel for 10 minutes quietly but then he starts chirping. Im almost positive it is coming from him and if it is thats hilarious

This is absolutely adorable!

Stella makes a noise similar to this, but not as frequent!

You should really try a silent spinner- that noise just gives me nightmares.

Silent Spinners are not good wheels for hedgies.
The have tiny slits in the wheels surface that could cause a nail/toe to get caught causing serious injury.
