:D Hello Group My name is Marilyn and I joined this group awhile back so I could get educated on these wonderful animals, I have been reading and reading my next step was to locate a good Breeder in Oregon I found an Awsome Breeder Deneen at HedgiePets . I now have a baby that will be weaned some time near Mothers day thats kinda neat me a new mom at 51 years of age, I can Hardly wait to see a picture she is an Albino and was born March 22 2010 her proud parents are Lavender and Brownie of HedgiePets. My next project is to figure out a beautiful name for my baby girl,I am sooooooooooo excited as soon as she moves home Ill be posting pictures for sure. My baby girl gets her own 800 Square foot room with all the goodies and later on I Plan on getting a little male and he will get his own 400 Square foot. I have fallen in love with the Black and Dark grey Algerians and the Pinto's in that color. After doing alot of Food research I have decieded to feed Blue Buffalo Spa select as my staple food and of course all the other stuff they need to. I am counting down the days for my Drive to Eugene :D

That's great you're hedgie will have so much room! Be sure to heat all areas. How are you heating the space? A couple thermometers around will probably be useful. I would also recommend using light (white) liners. That way you can easily do a quick check for blood or accidents anywhere.

The Bedroom has its own heating system and it operates by a thermostat, and I do have temp. probes at all levels of the room so I know at anygiven moment what the temp. is.

Welcome and congratulations! I'm getting 3 hedgies from hedgiepets at the end of the month, you can see my two girls on her "hedgehogs available" page. She's also fostering my Texas rescue girl for me till I get there. She was telling me about the Albino girl that you're going to be getting.

I haven't seen pics of her either, Deneen was just telling me about her and her littermates. Yes its going to be a long drive, driving straight through it would be 24 hours. Hubby and I are bringing our holiday trailer and we'll be taking the coastal route down so it will take about 4 days to get to Deneen's. Then we'll visit with her for a few days and head back up to Canada! Maybe I'll get to see your girl when I'm there!
