Waiting List

Our Waiting List is OPEN!

Pick up in Helena, AL, or ground transport is available all over the United States!

 

Choosing a hedgehog goes in order the deposit was received.

 

Please be advised, you may be waiting several months for a hedgehog with your exact colors and desires. Just because you'd like a certain color, does not mean that color will come available 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. 

Our hedgehogs come FIRST. If a litter is not successful then this could extend your wait time by 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. 

To reserve a spot on the waiting list there is a nonrefundable $50 deposit that can be placed below. Please fill out the contact form then it will prompt you to pay the deposit. This is equivalent to the deposit you would pay to reserve a baby that would be available now. The $50 credit 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.

There is a $3 service fee. This will not credit towards the price of your hedgehog. 

Expected Timeline - If all goes to plan...

This whole process, if everything goes to plan, will take approximately 3 months.

Granted, we likely will have babies in the nest or already paired females when you contact us and this would cut down your wait time! 

  • Breeding pairs are together for one week. 

  • IF that breeding was successful (it isn't always), then a hedgehog's gestation is 35-50 days

  • Once babies are born, we will not disturb the mother for two weeks. 

  • At two weeks old, we will get genders, headcount, and first pictures of the babies. We will update you once a week with updated pictures of all the babies after this. 

  • At four to five weeks old, you will get to choose your baby. We will then update you weekly on just your baby. 

  • At seven to eight weeks old, your baby can leave us on transport or for in-person pickup. Babies must be at least 200 grams before leaving us. 

 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! 

We are no longer accepting PayPal. We accept credit card payments or Venmo.

Follow instructions at check out for the Venmo option.

Once you place a deposit we will contact you shortly! Please give us at least 24 hours to respond. If you do not hear from us after 24 hours then please contact us so we can make sure the payment went through! If you are viewing this page on a mobile phone the list may be distorted. For the best experience please view on a computer.

IMPORTANT: Please know that if you don't like any of the babies we are updating you on when you are on the waiting list or when it's your turn to pick then you are NOT obligated to choose a baby from that litter! You're more than welcome to wait for a future litter to get your perfect baby! No pressure to choose if one of those babies isn't right for you or if the timing isn't right due to something that has come up! Just let us know and we will update you on future litters! :) 

Payment Timeline

Transport Fees- transport fees are due when you choose your hedgehog around 4-5 weeks old. This is to avoid any delays with getting your hedgehog on transport as soon as he/she is ready! 

Remaining fee for your hedgehog:

For people needing transport: the remaining payment is due when your hedgehog turns 7 weeks old or before it leaves on transport, whichever comes first. We will still update you on your baby weekly until your hedgehog is picked up on transport! Read our policies for further information on the remaining fee and your options. 

In-person pick up: the remaining payment is due when you pick up your hedgehog. Pick-up should be scheduled within 7 days of your hedgehog ready date. If your hedgehog is not picked up in 7 days then your hedgehog needs to be paid in full for us to continue holding your hedgehog until you can pick up. 

*Breeders or those interested in becoming a breeder: *Currently we are full and not taking on any more mentees at this time. But there are other awesome breeders that can be great mentors! If you have a mentor already please contact us before placing a deposit for the waiting list!*

Please contact us BEFORE you place a deposit to be on the waiting list. We will ask you a few questions before approving you to be on our waiting list. If you are interested in becoming a breeder you will need to have a pedigree mentor. We do offer mentorship and can assist with this to approved people. Reach out if you are interested. We do require you to have hedgehog owner experience first. We can help you with getting your first hedgehog and give you more information on the next steps on becoming a breeder after some time of being a hedgehog owner and if becoming a breeder is right for you!
