Home Forums Champions’ chat Checking my Hedgehog House Reply To: Checking my Hedgehog House


What I do, once I’m sure they’re all awake, is to put some twigs and leaves across the entrance. If they’re disturbed then it’s in use and leave it alone, if they’re untouched then it’s empty and ok to open.

The temps are going to be a lot higher next week so a good time to do this check since they should all be out and about.

I will admit that I worry each year when I do this that i’ll find a deceased hog inside especially after a winter like this one.
