We tried “Spike” on our hedgehogs when we started out. They ate some but weren’t overly keen. I’m not sure why it needs to be that colour either. We then bought some Hedgehog food from ArkWildlife and first of all tried it against Spike. The hogs absolutely loved it and when given the choice ate the ArkWildlife food over the Spike again and again. You can buy it in bulk so it works out cheaper, delivery is normally the next day if you order in the morning and if you order enough (£25) or top up with bird food to the required value, which we also buy from them, then delivery is free.

We use nothing else, they really “enjoy” eating and crunching on it.

Goes without saying to provide plenty of water.

Because we buy our wildlife foods in bulk its a good idea to store it in plastic bins or boxes to keep it fresh and stops any problems with mice (who also like it).
