Home Forums Carers / rescuing a hedgehog Advice needed Reply To: Advice needed


Are they living in the houses? Are they bigger than tennis ball size? If so I would be inclined just to continue to monitor, that way if one stops coming then you can ‘rescue’ it
Yes they can feed all winter – hogs don’t need to hibernate and as long as you are providing good food they may decide not to.
A tip to watch for is if they start to taper off coming then it’s likely they are looking to hibernate and time to weigh them
