    I brought little Peter Quill home when he was about 8 weeks old and tried to feed him mealworms then but he just ignored them. I tried a few times again after he got acclimated to his new home but he still doesn't like them. He doesn't like fruits or vegetables either but I just recently...

    I got Quill from a breeder when he was about 7 weeks old. He's about 7 months now and has been eating the same cat food since birth (I use the same brand as his breeder). Recently I took him to the vet and she says he's a little overweight and recommended trying to mix up his diet more with new...

    Hi everyone! I had heard from someone that feeding baby hedgehogs mealworms is bad because they're too fattening. I'm pretty sure this is false, but I just wanted to make sure. I know that insects are high in fat, but they should have some insects, yes? If someone can debunk this for me then...

    So when I first got Moon I had her strictly on her cat food that she'd been eating while at her breeder's home, and the breeder gave me a small bag of the mix until I buy some of my own. I still have about half the bag while I've been introducing fruits, vegetables and eggs to her. She...

    Hello, So I am wondering how much fiber should be in my cat food that I feed my hedgehog. I currently feed her chicken soup for the soul adult cat food it says on my bag that it has 3% fiber. Also I was wondering if mealworms would be a good snack to feed to increase fiber intake? The reason for...

    Hi. I am about to get my first hedgehog, and I am really excited. I noticed mealworms seem to be a popular treat. They seem a bit pricey over time, so I think I may try to raise them. Is it worth raising mealworms for one hedgehog? If so, how many do you think I should get to establish a farm...

    So I decided I was going to breed Mealworms so I don't have to go to the pet store as often seeing as I just got two two and a half month old baby sisters, plus I already had my year old Stella and my year and a half old Knuckles. My mom has her own Shes 4 years old and her name is Maleka, so we...

    Hey everyone, I tried feeding my hedgehog live mealworms for the first time and he didn't seem interested at all. I placed them directly in front of him, and he sniffed them and went along his business. I tried again a bit later with a different mealworm, and he did the same thing. He seemed...

    I want to buy my hedgie mealworms as a treat. I was originally going to buy freeze dried but then I read about the dangers. I'm definitely not feeding canned because of the smell and i'm worried about mealworms turning into beetles. :confused: any ideas as to what I can do? P.S. It can't...

    I know this is beyond pathetic to brag about, but Gretta finally ate a mealworm:) This funny girl has been running away from them every time I've offered them. I tried leaving them in a dish in her cage, but that ended when I found a mealworm in my bedroom (how it got there I have no idea, I...

  16. Fecal & Intestinal issues
    Hello everyone, I am a new hedgehog owner. I have a few questions and concerns. I have had my hedgie for 3 weeks. The pet shop told me that she was about 4 months old. It appears she has settled in nicely and I take her out every evening to hang out. She is very friendly and seems relaxed when...
