in a few months or so i'm thinking about going to Millermeade Farms to get another hedgehog, i love them! :lol:
so i was looking at the color guide on here and the most adorable one is the algerian black hedgehog, out of all the pictures i've seen of everyone's hedgehogs, i dont think i've caught one of these, does anyone have one? and are they rare or not bred very much? also, does anyone know if Gail (i think thats her name) at Millermeade has any algerian blacks? because i went on the millermeade site and it said she carries all colors. i love them because they have black feet and a black face as well as the quills, they look like little bears :lol:

she doesnt have all of them, but she does have alot, but, say if she doesnt have a color, sold the last baby, she doesnt have time to change, it to the specific colors she does have, but i think sum 1 has 1,and they posted a pic, and asked if they would stay that color, but they dont stay pure black, it fades after quilling, but they are still adorable, maybe email gail, and ask if she has any, at this time, if u wanna reserve 1, or go sooner than u planned to get it.

do their face and feet stay completely black or is it just the quills that dont stay black after quilling?

everything fades, cuz if u look at the pics people post in fun stuff it is all sorta the same shade, they start off at the same darker shade, then it all sorta fades to the same lighter shade shade,or almost the same shade .

Side note: im goin to gails in a few days for my first hedgie!!!!!! :D im soooooo excited!!!!

True Algerian Blacks are extremely rare, and when they are bred, they are almost always kept as breeders because of how uncommon they are.
