Dead easy to do. Kitchen scales and a container that’s big enough and will fit on the scales. I’ve used pyrex bowls and plastic food storage boxes before now. If your scales have a tare function then zero the weight of the container before putting the hog in or take a note of the weight of the empty container. Pair of gloves, grab one hedgehog, place in the container and weigh it.

Obviously do it as quickly as you can to minimise the annoyance so get everything ready before grabbing the hog.
