- Apricot X Cashew ~ Born 9/12/2020 (4 babies, Apricot/Cinnamon coloration expected)
Next litters will be updated soon.
Check herd page for these pairings coloration. Pick up in Pelham, AL, or shipping available.
The list always goes in order of the date the deposit is received. Please be advised, you may be waiting for several months for a baby with your exact colors and desires. Just because you say you'd like a certain color, does not mean that color will come available anytime soon. We try to predict what color the litter will be, but that doesn't mean we WILL have that color in the litter. We have no control over how many babies will be born in a litter. Hedgehogs tend to have 3-4 hoglets in a litter, but that can vary from 1-8 babies.
We will do everything we can to get you your perfect baby, but this will require you to be patient :)
A general timeline~ breeding pair is together for one week. IF that breeding was successful (it isn't always) then a hedgehogs gestation is 35-50 days and babies won't be ready for their new homes until they are 200 grams (around 6-7 weeks). You are looking at around 3 months before getting a baby and that's with no one in front of you on the waiting list. The wait is worth it :)
Our hedgehogs come FIRST. If a litter is not successful then this could extend your wait time several months. We will NEVER breed a female that is not ready or has not had enough rest just to get you a baby faster. OUR HEDGEHOGS COME FIRST, not you.
Information on the waiting list...
To reserve a spot on the waiting list there is a nonrefundable $50 holding deposit that can be placed below. This is equivalent to the deposit you would pay to reserve a baby that would be available now. The $50 credits towards the total price of the hedgehog and is not a separate fee. If you decide the wait is too long or you found a hedgehog somewhere else you will not get this deposit back. But if you do decide to wait it out, the wait is worth it :)
Once the babies are born, they will not be disturbed for the first 2 weeks. Once they are 2 weeks old, we will get a headcount, idea of their colors, gender, and send emails notifying the people that have a spot in the litter. We will not be updating the whole waiting list. We will update you once a week with pictures of the babies. At 5 weeks old, you will be able to choose your baby in the order of the deposits placed. Once your baby reaches 200 grams then your baby is ready to go home with you (roughly 6-8 weeks old)!
You are able to say you want to wait for the next litter at any point in this process!
You are not obligated to choose a baby from a litter you have been updated on.
If you have any questions please contact us! We will be happy to answer any questions you may have!
