cage setup

  1. Heating
    I'm in the process of setting up my cage and it is 4ft x 2ft. I'm going to use ceramic heat emitter bulbs. Should I just use one heat emitter or two?
  2. Cages
    I have been interested in hedgies but know I won't be getting one for awhile, until we settle in to a home for longer then a few months, and would love to create a space for a hedgie. I would like to create a 10 foot W X 3 feet H x 2 feet D area - bottom level will be drawers for storing food...
  3. Wheels
    Hi, :grin: I'm a new hedgie owner and I've done LOTS of research before deciding to get my hedgie. One thing I am concerned about is litter training and his wheel. I've read that when attempting to litter train your pet, you should keep the wheel out of the cage because it distracts them and...

  7. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    My hedgie, Flynn, is 8 weeks old and I just want to make sure I'm doing and providing everything right. I clean his cage about once a week (I used fleece that I cut up into tiny rectangles so he can burrow) and clean his food dish, water bottle, and wheel daily. (Usually in the mornings) I also...

After goggle searching it, I think this could be really cool and stable for a hedgehog cage. It seems solid and sturdy and you could make it so the plexiglass on the...

    Hi All! This will be my first post on this site though I've been browsing the forums here for close to 6 months. I bring my baby hedgie home from the breeder this weekend and in my readings have heard not to put certain things in a babys cage until they are better adapted to their new...
