    Hi all, this may sound like a silly question but I am wondering about the air vent in the room I keep Arowen in.

    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...

    As I am setting up the cage for my hedgehog I am also testing the heating system. My current CHE setup is a 10" dome and a 100 watt bulb, along with a thermostat and thermometer. It seems as if the bulb cannot keep up and is not heating the cage properly, directly under the heat lamp only...
