THESE ARE SOME OF THE ADORABLE BABY HEDGEHOGS THAT WE
HAVE HAD THE PLEASURE OF RAISING OVER THE YEARS.

hedgehogs for sale THIS LITTLE FELLA IS ONLY ABOUT 5 DAYS OLD.

WE ARE ASKED ALL THE TIME WHETHER THEY
ARE BORN WITH THE QUILLS OR NOT? THE
ANSWER IS: SORT OF.

THE BABIES ARE BORN WITH THE QUILLS
LAYING BELOW THE SURFACE OF THE SKIN.
THEY SAFELY TRAVEL THROUGH THE BIRTH
CANAL WITHOUT INJURING THE MAMA.
AFTER ONLY A FEW HOURS, THE QUILLS POP THROUGH THE SKIN!

THE BABY HEDGIES GO THROUGH SEVERAL "QUILLING" STAGES. THEY WILL SHED THEIR QUILLS A FEW TIMES BETWEEN BIRTH AND WEANING AT ABOUT 7-8 WEEKS OF AGE.

hedgehog babies THIS LITTER OF HEDGIES IS ABOUT
2 WEEKS OLD. SEVEN BABIES IS A BIG
LITTER FOR HEDGEHOGS!
3 OR 4 BABIES IS MORE COMMON.


WE USUALLY WEAN OUR BABIES AT
7-8 WEEKS OF AGE DEPENDING ON LITTER SIZE.

WHEN THE LITTER IS THIS LARGE, THE BABIES
GROW SOMEWHAT SLOWER. IT IS NECESSARY
TO LEAVE BABIES FROM A BIG LITTER LIKE
THIS WITH MAMA FOR A BIT LONGER TO GIVE
THEM A GOOD START!

HEDGEHOG GENETICS ARE SUCH THAT THE COLOR
GENES SEPARATE. THIS ALLOWS US TO CROSS
ANIMALS OF DIFFERENT COLORS AND PRODUCE
YOUNGSTERS OF SEVERAL COLORS IN THE SAME LITTER!


THE COLOR GENES DON'T BLEND TO FORM
MURKY COLORED OFFSPRING, BUT RATHER THEY

SEPARATE TO PRODUCE DISTINCTLY SEPARATE
COLORED YOUNG.
