Yeah that's the other disadvantage to soft food, lots of hedgehogs will not eat it. Quigley is like that. Unless it's crunchy he won't eat it. Even his baby food which he loves he will not eat unless I syringe it (I guess the hard plastic of the syringe convinces him).

Quigley won't eat soft food either (unless I syringe it to him). When choosing a soft food you have to look at ingredients the same way you would for a kibble. Some of the good brands of kibble will also make a soft food. I like Wellness for my cats they seem to do well with it. Merrick and Halo are also good brands for cats but I don't know what they are like for hedgehogs.

To add fiber and help with the poop you could try mixing in some plain canned pumpkin or get some baby food squash. A tsp mixed with the food should help but you can add more if they need it.
