So what I have found from watching the hedgehogs on the trail cams, is that they poo when they come into contact with another hedgehog. Has anyone else seen this? I assume it is some sort of defence mechanism or territorial marking thing? I think that explains why they poo in the feeding stations as they are sharing them with lots of other hogs. I lay a couple of sheets of newspaper in my plastic feeding station so I can just roll all the mess up and replace with clean sheets.
