Home Forums Carers / rescuing a hedgehog Over wintering…. Reply To: Over wintering….


Hi I have two underweight rescues, they have been here for 3 and 4 weeks now. I spoke to my local rescue lady who was very helpful and told me what signs to look out for and to get back to her if I was worried. They are doing really well and I am happy to keep them over winter. But, at the moment they are in wooden toy box, 3 feet long by 18 inches wide. I don’t think this is really large enough, but before I go and buy something else I would appreciate advice on what is ideal. Also, reading this thread, what is the Vale course? Thank you in advance for any advice anyone can give me.
