Once your deposit is received we will be in contact with you to confirm your preferences.... Gender, quill colors, facial markings, etc... If you have a picture of your "ideal" hedgehog please send it along to us. ( Be aware that pictures of adults are very different than babies and while we try to match you to the picture you send sometimes we can only get close) We will do our very best to match you with the perfect bundle of quills! Keep in mind that the more specific you are in your request, the more time it may take - We do not breed for specific colors or facial markings, we breed for health and temperament. While we wait... start making decisions of what type of habitat you would like to use for your quillie buddy. Check the Blog section here for more information on nutrition, heating, housing options and more... And always remember to check with us if you have ANY questions, We are here to help you make the perfect home for your little one!
IT'S FINALLY TIME: when your baby is ready to go home you will receive an email from us with all the necessary paperwork, policies for pick up and a picture.... THIS IS IMPORTANT: IF YOU DO NOT RESPOND TO THE EMAIL OR TEXT MESSAGE WITHIN 3 DAYS YOU WILL FORFEIT YOUR BABY AND YOUR DEPOSIT! Hedgehog babies have a greater success for easier transition to their new home between the ages of 7 - 10 weeks. IF YOU DID NOT SEE YOUR EMAIL OR TEXT.... AND CONTACT US AFTER THE 3 DAY NOTIFICATION PERIOD YOU WILL HAVE TO GO TO THE BACK OF THE LINE.... sorry, but others have been patiently waiting their turn as well.
There is no telling what Mother Nature has in store for us. Litters range from 1 to 7 or 8 but, mom's can have false pregnancies and miscarriages or even destroy entire litters - Dates you see above are Approximate dates only - Babies must be 7 weeks old and weigh between 180 - 200 grams before they leave us.
Our costs are increasing: as the costs have increased for food and bedding we find that we must slightly adjust our prices as well. Thank you for your loyalty, support and understanding.
Current fees for our babies $200 to $250 depending upon facial features and quill colors the more rare or unique the higher the price.
All our animals are pedigreed, we track lineage, and do our best to produce healthy happy
hedgehogs for the pet community.

There is no fee just let us know if you are ready or willing to accept a baby at short notice... also, if the baby available does not meet your preferences you are under no obligation to take that animal. It does not change your place in line...
