    Hi, I am feeding hedgehog food and I wonder how much to put. it is always all eaten, but I dont know how many hedgehogs are visiting, I get activity about 3 to 5 times a night on the camera, but only one at a time, I dont know if it is the same hedgehog coming back or a different one each time, if the first hedgehog eats it all the others might not be getting anything, but if it is one I dont want to leave too much. I am using hedgehog food as I get too much cat activity with cat food. Also at first when all the food wasnt eaten in one go I got a lot of mice.


    Hi Becky, my own rule of thumb is if the food is all eaten over a few nights then add some more. If all is not being eaten over the same period put down less. This time of the year, juveniles will need all the help they can get.
