what about egg shells, this would be easier and cost effective for me – as I like to have a couple of eggs for breakfast regularly, but would the shells hurt the hedgehogs feet?

I think it probably would, so copper might be the next best option, I could get this from gardening shops, I don’t know where I’d find sheeps wool from near where I live.

If I use copper, where would I put it? I’ve got a wooden square that fits inside the hole I use for the feeding station, so should I tape it to the square? and do garden centres sell them? I think that would be a good idea, and then use egg shells for the plants not in pots.
