Ria Lamb is another favourite cooked meat she has.
She also likes cooked sweet potatoes, carrots, sweetcorn, brussel sprouts. She wont eat the sweet potato or carrots mashed only eats them cut into little cubes. She prefers cooked apples. Watermellon and pears
You can also try scrambled egg (not mad with milk though) or a boiled egg broken up.

Believe it or not shes not keen on mealworms😂

It took a lot of bonding and work to get her comfortable taking treats off me to be fair, it can with shyer hedgehogs.

Starshinepunk Hmmm Duck is hard to come by here and he hasn’t shown any interest in chicken either. Just mealies if I leave them alive in his bowl and the baby food. Oh and strawberries and bananas if left in his dish. Lol

Ria Holly can be like this. We generally clean her feet in my room, so its quiet, just me and her so she will take the treats.
She used to only eat them if I left them in her cage.
Then I started offering her treats when she was in her cage, and she did start taking them. Now she'll take them if its just me and her in my room.

She loves plain cooked duck the most !! She'll take that no problem wherever she is !!

Starshinepunk I haven’t found any treats that Pugsley will take from me or even if I’m around or watching so I haven’t figured out how to reward him yet. The closest I’ve gotten is stage 2 gerber meat and gravy, but even then it depends on his mood. Just about anything else if I leave it in his food dish he’ll eat it, just not while anyone is watching.

Ria Its great it does a good job, its less stressful on both me and her, and has less chance of drying out skin. Oh and she gets treats😂

Starshinepunk I just saw one of your posts about that!! Using a damp cloth, toothbrush, and a dry cloth!
I think that’s better so their skin doesn’t dry out due to the soap stripping the natural oils away.
Pugsley only got on this time because he wasn’t really dirty but he stank.

Ria Holly rarly has baths, Shes had 3 baths in her whole life. I dont give foot baths because I use other methods to not cause too much stress on her about them. Also helps me clean them more often.

Starshinepunk I’ll keep that in mind for his next bath. He’s a pretty clean hedgie so he doesn’t need them very often. At least for now anyway.
You’re always such a great help Ria, thank you!

Ria No, after baths all hedgehogs become way more cuddly because even if the explore its still the worlds worst thing for them !! Well in their eyes anyway !!
Holly really is so loveable
