Welcome to Hedgehog's Island! -Our herd has it's own room. All our supplies are in this room, making it easy to have everything under control. -We control temperature by using the space heater, making sure that our babies stay warm. -The wheel, the litter box as well as some spot cleaning are done daily while a complete clean up of the cages is done weekly. -We use fleece bedding for main purpose of being ecological (reusable and cleanable). -Each hedgehog have a complete bath and their nails trim every two weeks. -They are handled manipulated everyday. -Every two days, they get supervised free roaming in a selected room. Independently for males, in group for females. In example, Day 1 will be only the males, then we clean the floor for females on Day 2. -Baby hedgehogs are daily handled every day since the age of 12 or 14 days. The older they get, the longer they get manipulated and played with. When they are old enough to discover and explore, around 3,5 to 4 weeks old, they have play time with their mom in a small playpen. They get used to being kissed, held and petted. They also get safe around different sounds like the TV, the radio or to different people. Our babies leave us well socialized and really friendly!
