    Hello. I came across some videos on YouTube of people giving their hedgies dust baths using chinchilla dust, and I thought it was a great idea.

  2. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    I've had a hedgehog who's about 7 months old! He's a bit of a diva and very much a brat. I try to bond with him, but honestly we're very alike in the way we really like to do our own thing.

    My girl is 12 weeks old, and has been quilling for about two weeks. When I first noticed how dry her skin was I did some research and tried to give her an oatmeal bath with flaxseed oil in the rinse water to help soften her skin. I'd only had her for a week at that point, but I really wanted to...
  8. General Questions
    I was wondering if I could bathe my hedgie when she is quilling. Like, using the toothbrush and everything- would that hurt her too much and should I wait until she is done? And how long does quilling usually last? :confused: Thanks!

    Hello all! I am a newbie hedgie owner. :grin: I've owned my new baby girl, Murphy, for about 2 weeks now, and despite reading all the books available in my library system and watching oodles of videos on youtube, being a hedgie owner is harder than I thought it would be! I wasn't expecting...
