Home Forums Carers / rescuing a hedgehog Hedgehogs out during the day Reply To: Hedgehogs out during the day


It is unusual for them to be out during the day time but it’s not unheard of. It sounds as if they are staying as a family group from what you’ve put here and it could be because it’s so late in the season and mum isn’t looking to breed again and therefore hasn’t left the hoglets. This is not a bad thing as long as they are all growing and thriving – I’m assuming you are feeding them also?

To be honest as it’s not alway’s possible to get an accurate picture to give advice to on here I would contact you nearest carer for a proper chat.
