Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Minimum size golf hedgehog house. Reply To: Minimum size golf hedgehog house.


The house is 60cm length and 30cm width and the hard board it’s made from is 8mm thick. Taking account of the thickness of the external and internal walls there are for chambers all 28.4cm by 13.5 cm; the two chambers at either end are corridors with an entrance of around 12-13cm with same size door into the two separate inner living chambers. The hedgehog didn’t seem to have enough room to turn around. Is it best to have just the one entrance corridor and convert the three other chambers into one large one around 38cm by 27cm (add more ply board to thicken the sleeping chamber walls and floor for insulation)?
