The local rescue centre here had 50 young hedgehogs that were underweight and was asking around for people to take them in over winter. I built a hutch and took three. I still have them and they have put on weight. I’m waiting for the rescue people to tell me when they should let out. I hate having them caged up, although it’s a nice and quite big hutch. There is chicken wire all around, to stop rats and squirrels getting in and on top of the “open area” and I added a corrugated roof on the opening sloping section.
Inside I put a load of leaves, twigs, branches and a couple of hedgehogs houses.
