Home Forums Carers / rescuing a hedgehog Hedgehog home Reply To: Hedgehog home


My husband has built 2 hedgehog houses as we have 2 hedgehogs in our garden for months. I have put hay in both and feed them every night. They go in and out of both houses from around 7 until 4am but then go back to where they are nesting, unfortunately in a wood pile that we need to get rid of. Will they eventually hibernate in the houses or is there anything I can do to encourage them to stay ?
