    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. Heating
    I just recently rescued my hedgie Misaki from a neglectful household and she has been warming up to me just fine, however the previous owner used only a heat lamp in a wire cage. I have now purchased a heat pad but it doesn't seem to be enough heat for her. I can use a space heater all day in...

    Hi everyone! When I got home today, I noticed that both of Bean's heat lamps were completely cold. I've been using the same zilla thermostat for 3+ years and have never had any problems, but I'm wondering if maybe it died? The green and red lights are both on, but it's just not doing anything...
  4. Hibernation
    Hi everyone, I'm a little worried. When I woke up this morning, I checked my thermostat and it read about 72-73 degrees, and my other thermometer (in the coldest corner of the cage) was reading at 71. I have my thermostat set to 78 degrees default and the bulb turns on once it gets below 77...

    Hey everyone! I'm searching for a good heat lamp and was wondering if this one is okay to use for a hedgie? https://www.amazon.ca/Zilla-2-Inch-Premium-Reflector-150-Watt/dp/B005OCWP1Q/ref=sr_1_3?s=pet-supplies&ie=UTF8&qid=1484238577&sr=1-3&keywords=ceramic+heat+emitter Thanks :grin:

    So I'm about to get a hedgehog and I've been reading reviews about ceramic heat lamps and heat lamps and I have no idea what to buy. The ceramic heat lamp I bought ( BYB - 150W 110V Ceramic Infrared Heat Emitter Brooder Coop Pet Infrared Lamp Bulb, Black ) needs a lamp that can hold 150W or...

    Hello! I've had my hedgehog for about 7 months. I did research before getting him, but wasn't sure what type of heating system to use for his cage. I wanted a ceramic heat lamp, but because he had a tuber-ware cage, I decided against it. I keep my room around 68 degrees, and I watched him...
  8. General Questions
    Hi, I am 28 days from getting my hedgehog, and i just set up its home. I want to make sure everything is right, and I may be having an issue with the CHE. How long does usually take to heat a standard 40x24 wire side cage? I have had it plugged in for over and hour with little noticeable...
  9. Heating
    I just got my hedgie today and the thermostat has still not come in the mail as none of the nearby pet stores had a thermostat... My room is the warmest one in the house and is usually between 23-25. Should I still turn the heater on with no thermostat or wait for it to come in? It should be...
  10. General Questions
    So I recently got a hedgehog (she's a year old but new to me) and I'm working on the best way to heat her cage as it gets pretty cold where I am. I'm pretty sure I'm going to go the CHE route with a thermostat, but I was wondering if it's better to get a white bulb or a black bulb? I know they...
  11. Cages
    So this is the cage that I have Nina set up in, but I've noticed that it's a little small. I do plan on getting an igloo and hoping she'll use it so her blankets don't take up as much room. My question is: Do you think it would be okay to add another two cubes and move the wheel to that side...

    Okay, so I've finally given in and decided I need a CHE. sigh. I've been running a heater, but it's getting very expensive very fast. I just have a few questions about a CHE. What are your suggestions for reasonably priced lamps and bulbs? And I have a plastic bin cage with wire screen fitted in...

    Hey there all! I made a C&C cage for the hedgie Im expecting in early February. I used these storage cubes that were recommended to me by a fellow hedgehog owner: http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/store/product/cube-grid-bin/3254073?Keyword=storage+cubes , but Im a little bit worried because they...
  14. General Questions
    Hey everyone, I just have a quick question about what wattage you'd recommend for a heat lamp. Right now everything is fine and warm in my house so I'm not worried, but I want to be sure Quill will be OK once its summer and AC will be on. His set up is 36"x18", no divisions or anything, just a...

    Hello All :) I am a brand new happy hedgie owner! He is a Salt and Pepper Hedgie who just turned 6 weeks :) His name is Quilly Nelson !! I do have a question though for any hedgie owner willing to answer! My boyfriend likes to keep our house pretty chilly (around 68 degrees) so i bought Quilly...
  16. Heating
    Ok so I'm preparing to get a hedgehog in the next few weeks...I plan on using a sterilite tote as a cage. My house can get very cold in the winter so I want to make sure that the hedgehog is warm. I have placed some items in my shopping cart to help heat my...

    I currently have 2 hedgies in one cage. They get along really well and value each other to cuddle with! They are in a 28x17x15.5 guinea pig cage with a hard bottom but wire sides. I am trying to find out if a 150w CHE with a 10" lamp is going to be good enough (there is nothing to trap the...
  18. Hibernation
    A few days ago I bought my hedgehog a heat lamp because it got below 70 in my house. I bought a ceramic clamp lamp with a red 100w (I think?) bulb. The petco people suggested a red bulb instead of a black. Once I bought him the heat lamp he has been sleeping constantly, not using his wheel...
