Default New hoglets and my vacation

After buying my hedgehog I was unaware she was pregnant til I saw her litter of 4 hoglets this morning after hearing them chirping. I am supposed to be gone for a week starting a week from tomorrow. Is it safe to take them in their home to my friend's house for her to make sure they have food and water or would that be too stressful? Thanks for the advice.

No you can't take the cage to your friends house. Any changes at all would most likely cause mom to kill the babies. You are going to have someone come to your house once a day to care for them. It needs to be someone you can trust 100% to not touch them, to not peek at them and that will just give food and water and leave them completely alone otherwise.
