Pookie needs a Mummy!

October 1, 2010

Well, our little bundles of prickles are doing really well – just separated from Mum they are munching their way through solid food and plenty of mealworms as treats! They love playtime in the paddling pool and getting up to mischief when they are out and about! The boys in particular seem to enjoy climbing and exploring!

Loving homes have been found for two of our hoglets – but we’re still looking for a mummy (or Daddy!) for little Pookie. He is very sweet and just like his brother has some lovely cream pinto markings. He will be ready to go to his new home around 15th October.

In other hedgehog news Peanut gave birth a few weeks ago to a litter of three girls! Quite dark in colour I think they may turn out to be algerian grey or algerian chocolate. (Hedgehog colours and genetics are very confusing!)

Anyway, I’m off to do the baby weigh-ins…so that Iain can update his little charts – just like a health visitor!

    Hi I am interested in buying a hedgehog, do you know where the best place to get one of these from. I live in central Scotland.

      Hi Colin,

      Thanks for getting in touch.

      Best place to check is on Preloved.com as this is where most people advertise but you’ll probably find that most responsible breeders won’t have hoglets ready for sale prior to Christmas for obvious reasons.

      We have just started to breed again and all going to plan we will have a couple of litters around the end of December which will be ready for their new homes end Jan / beginning of Feb. I personally deliver our hoglets where possible, central belt is no problem.

      We have a few names on our waiting list so far so email me if you want added and we will get in touch in the New Year once we know what we have.

      Kind regards,
      Iain
