Home Forums Carers / rescuing a hedgehog Hedgehog seen in the morning – could this be a problem? Reply To: Hedgehog seen in the morning – could this be a problem?



Hedgehogs do line their nests with leaves etc, so I wonder whether this was a sign that it was getting a nest ready to give birth? It would be about the right time of year for it. My hedgehog box has an occupant who has built a nest that now completely surrounds her (?). If she is giving birth, then I imagine she will stay like that until she has weaned the hoglets, and only then come out to feed.
