    No, how awful.

    At least they were getting advice though. So many don't

    Remember to make hedge hogg houses her in the winther months, they are having problems getting fresh water because of the minus degrees.
    You can easily make the houses your self, just remember to put straw in the buttom of the houses, so the frost temperature from the ground doesn't freeze the little creature under its belly. Also you can give them some fresh water, since the water wont freeze when its within the walls of the little house.

    All hedgehoggs seeks warmth here in the winther so its important we help them

    Great shout about houses, not heard of putting water in the houses, knowing hogs as I do they will tip that up in no time and then have wet bedding!

    An idea would be to have the water and food in a separate feeding station and much more easily accessible to change top up etc

    I agree nicolaa. I'd be very concerned about them tipping the water and then having nowhere warm to sleep

    Are your hedgehogs still about or hibernating yet?
