Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Small hedgehog feeding in my garden Reply To: Small hedgehog feeding in my garden


Over the past week or so I’ve been checking my garden for autumn juveniles and I have found 6 (3 at the same time). They were quite small so I weighed them and they were all under 250g. I phoned my local carer and she suggested that they were still very small for this time of year and might not reach a good weight to hibernate, especially if it goes cold suddenly! So they are now being looked after by a very dedicated carer. 5 females and one male. Hoping they all survive the winter so they can be set free to roam next year.
