I feed Blue as well. When my hedgehog was little his poop was longer than my pinky finger. If you have only had her for a week she is going to be stressed and have green poo when she is still adjusting to her environment and diet. Check her skin to see if its dry, if so check the enclosure. Most shaving will dry a hedgehogs skin. I use fleece. Also add flaxseed oil drops to her food and lavender drops when bath time rolls around. Having gotten your hedgehog you must be prepared to pay for the expenses of veterinary care. Just keep watching her carefully, respiratory infections or other major health problems in a hedgehog as young as yours need to be taken seriously as they can be fatal. Keep me updated and please consult your veterinarian!
