You need to have made preparations for your hedgehog before bringing them home. Please already have housing, food, water, toys, etc. We use 105 quart sterilite containers with fleece liners and pine pellets in the litter box plus the litter pan under exercise wheel. We also use ceramic bowls for food and water. Ceramic, being heavier, is hard to turn over and spill. And some water bottles leak.
An example of our set-up when babies are in there. We like pine shavings for the mom and babies to nest in. We remove the wheel during baby time also.
At this time, we feed Spikes Delite Premium Hedgehog food, available online or through us. If you would like to purchase Spikes brand feed, please contact Chastity by texting 256-three,zero,two-0707.
