Hello Nancy, Could you please give me some advice about handeling the mother after she give birth.
The babies were born on October 13-th, the mother is not sociable at all, and now with youngsters around she is really defending them.
But, since yesterday evening, when i have found her outside the cage, i have reached close to the cage and started to talk with her and in that moment she came closer to me and relaxed to flat position and actually started to closer her eyes.. she wasn't bother about my presence.
I would like to take her outside the cage for 5-10 minutes to check her health and feed her some worms and socialize a little bit. Can i do that ? i haven't topuched her since she gave birth.
The youngsters supose to open their eyes and on Sunday i am planning to start interact with them by taking 1 ouside the cage for a little while. Is dangerous that when i will put back the mother will kill the baby?
Any advice is more then welcomed.
Thank you in advance for your help.
Hi Nancy. I'm so sorry to bug you but I always appreciate the advice you give when I read your posts throughout the forum, and I'm desperate for a breeder opinion on my Pips situation. Rather than write it all again, it's best showcased under "Urgent, chronic UTI" under my handle PrincePip. Thank you so much in advance for any tips (P.S. I'm a former Kingstonian! I sure miss the limestone city dearly...especially Chez Piggy!)
Hi Nancy! I hope you don't mind the message. You seem very knowledgable and experienced, and my post hasn't gotten any answers. I was just wondering, if I have a cold, can my little hedgie catch it? I didn't take her out yesterday, just in case. I called the vet, but the secretary said it should be fine, and I just wish she would have double checked with the vet before immediately answering my question. So, I figured a second opinion wouldn't hurt, plus I'd like to take her out tonight if I can. Thank you!
My hedgehog just had babies this morning. I've been up with her and the breeder I got her from since 2:30am. I heard only one squeaking and eventually two. Does that mean that any others in there are dead? I've only physically seen 2 and they crawled around. I haven't seen any others or heard any.
