Thanks for all the advice.... really appreciated! I didn't know that looking after a baby hedgie can be so challenging....!! :lol:
Oh yes - she is in the process already! :lol:sebian said:OOOOoooooh yeah it can be. Just wait until the quilling begins :shock:
With our little one, whenever (and I mean, WHENEVER) you wake her up, she hisses and spikes.... so we haven't handled her yet... we have put our hands in, she sniffs and licks and she sleeps with our clothing so she should know our scent by now. And when we do try and put something new for her to eat.... she just looks over it.Kalandra said:Do you wake her up to play with her? If you have her on a regular schedule of when she expects to be awakened to play with, a portion of that interaction time could be used to introduce new foods. For instance mine are on the following schedule: up by 8pm, cage cleaned & food refilled 10pm, hedgehog back in to cage shortly after. Part of the new food is a bowl of just fruits/veggies/food of the night. Mine now expect this and will seek that bowl out to see what is in the bowl.
I thought about that.... so then what is the best way to do it? How?Zalea said:If you don't pick her up because she hisses and spikes, you might never pick her up. Don't let that keep you from holding her, because you need to pick her up and hold her daily.
