  1. Breeding & Babies Help
    Hello, I bought a hoglet two days ago (on monday) and the breeder said that he was able to eat properly and that he was ready to come to my house but he hasn't been eating for 2 days now and I'm getting really worried! I bought royal canin recovery can today and I fed him by hand about 0,5mL...

    I don't mean to be a bother on the forums... But Yue's runty passed away yesterday at 4 weeks old and it's got me quite neurotic about the other two. Both are strong and fluffy at 4 weeks and a little bit, and they're starting to chow out of mommy's food bowl (and anointing with the food...

    My hedgie Yue's babies are about a week old now! There are 3 (one sadly died) and two are already huge! The other though looks about the size its siblings were when they were born.

    My litter of hoglets is about five weeks old and they are all beginning to go through their first bout of quilling. I have noticed that all three females seem to be eating their solid food (royal canin). However, I don't think my male is eating it. He also has had green, almost slimy/solid...
  6. General Questions
    I was wondering if it would be alright for me to bathe my hoglet? She's exactly a month old today. But she smells awful. Are there any consequences to me bathing her right now? Why is it better to wait?

  8. Feet and legs
    Hey all :) I have a little male hoglet, 7 weeks old, who seems to be having issues with his hind quarters. He can run around, and is eating and pooing like normal, but he tends to stick his feet out when he walks (looks kind of like splay legs in birds, or flipper legs...). He also has...

    I got a very rare opportunity to watch AND film my mama hedgehog give birth. She did not know I was there, therefore I did not harm her or cause her any stress. Here it is

    I have a litter of 4 5 week old hoglets, next week they will be moving into the nursery. Anyway the one boy, the runt, I plan on keeping for breeding (Theodore).

    Hi, I have a 3 month old hedgehog that I just purchased two days ago on Tuesday. I have had hedgehogs before but I have never had a hedgehog that has diarrhea.
