It's great to hear you will be feeding Wellness, it is a thousand times better than Iams.

If you can gradually transfer from Iams to Wellness by putting in small amounts of Wellness in it's old food, and just keep adding more over a period of about 2 weeks, that is best. Some hedgies will eat around the old food and just eat the new stuff. This can cause tummy upsets but as long as it doesn't last too long, don't worry about it too much. If green/runny poop continues, it's best to get to a vet, and make sure hedgie's hydrated.

Most owners have a bowl of food available at all times, so a hedgie is never hungry. Just have a bit more than hedgie'll eat in one night, that way you can toss the old stuff in the morning. :)
