That's in length, not width, right? Healthy hedgies can still gain weight and fill out (so to speak) after 6mos.

Due to high fat food and lack of exercise, yes hedgies can still gain weight after 6 months. Normal healthy hedgehogs will be full grown by 6 months.

I found another post on here from Bryan that state full maturity is reached at 10-11 months. At 6 months they are mature enough to breed, but I was under the impression that there could be some filling out that is done until 10 months.

I have had babies so rarely in my history with hedgehogs so my actual experience with it is very limited. I typically get hedgehogs when they are over a year already. The first babies I don't rightly remember when they stopped growing (was 14 years ago), but with Riley & Rose I know Riley continued to fill out until he was nearly 10 months. He was such a slender boy at 6 months, but filled out to be quite a handsome boy.
