nikki You can start handling them anytime now. You should be weaning any male babies now as well and the females can stay with mom until they are 6 weeks old. I would start by only handling them for a couple of minutes and slowly work up to longer periods.

You can put the wheel back when all of the babies are weaned and in their own cages.

Handling babies

Hi again!! My hedgehog had babies about 5 weeks ago now and I was wondering if I can take the babies and mom out all together or if that is a bad idea? Also when should I add the wheel back in? I heard that you shouldn’t until the babies are separated as a safety precaution but you never know.
Thank you!
