Default Urgent....

I need some advice... I was on vacation and my female hedgehog got out of ur cage. We dont know how long she was out. We found her the night we got back which was Thursday. Well today we found 4 little hoglets behide the fridge. I put on some gloves to get the hoglets and put them with the mom. I am worried she isnt gonna nurse them. She was away from them four at least 5 days. Any advise?

The best thing you can do is leave her alone with them and hope she takes them back and starts nursing them. Were they all together and did they look healthy? That should have been only 2 days or so so they have a chance. There are sections on here about raising babies you should read.

How big are the babies? are their eyes open? how long were you away? If the babies survived that long without her there's a good chance she'll take them back.

So did you know she was pregnant? The way I'm reading this is that she gave birth to them behind your refrigerator and you didn't know about them until they were found. Is that correct?
