Default !!! Surprise!!!

Tonight I came home and heard some strange squeaking from my hedgehog cage.... there’s baby hedgehogs!! I freaked out because I thought the mom was eating them (there was blood but not a lot, also there were no baby hedgehogs last night) I don’t know, but they are squeaking a lot. I don’t have a heat set up yet (I’m in Florida) but my house is about 76. Help!! I’ve never had hedgehogs before this I have ZERO experience and I have no clue what to do. I’m literally still learning about them...I don’t know if she’s doing what she’s supposed to or if she’s eating them and it’s killing me..

Theres a stickie you can read about surprise babies its called emergency baby advice.
But I dont know anything about it so read the stickie and wait for someone who does know to answer.

IF you only have one hedgehog, contact the breeder you got her from and ask if she was possibly pregnant when she came to you. Ask them for advice. If not, just do the best you can and research

To add on the only thing I can say is do not stress the mother out. Do not change anything in the cage. Just make sure to quietly and carefully change the water and food daily.

Can’t you give the babies back to the breeder?
Just like, common knowledge question, if you get a pregnant female without knowing it, and she get so pregnant, won’t you be able to give the babies and the mom back to the breeder temporarily, and then take the mom back after the babies are old enough?
Or do you have to take care of them yourself?

No its too risky because you have to leave them alone for 2 weeks not stress the mum or she will eat the babies, they can't bs touched and nothing can be changed, now she's been away from the breeder she has to stay put in the new environment to avoid anything bad happening
