It could also help to keep your hedgie's litter pan near you, outside of the cage, whenever you handle them. That way, you can just plop them inside the litter cage whenever they start to poo/pee - the usual signs are more frantic behavior/more squirmy, plus their little tails will raise and up. Some hedgies will sometimes stop and stare when they're going to the bathroom too. Just watch for the signs for your hedgie, that way you'll know when they're about to go potty!
