Home Forums Champions’ chat Is a house mounted on hardstanding OK? Reply To: Is a house mounted on hardstanding OK?


I was looking at the house again to plan where the ventilation holes will go when I noticed that the entry arch seemed a bit low. I’ve measured it and it’s just 4 inches high. I understood from instructions about constructing a feeding station that the recommended size was 5 inches wide and 5 inches high.

I don’t know enough about a hedgehog’s physiology to know whether or not they can squeeze themselves into small apertures (like a cat can, for instance), so I’d appreciate some advice about this! Thanks in advance.
