I have two little hoglets available for reservation from my last litter born 28th March 2023. The girl is incredibly confident and outgoing. 8I can't even make her ball up, she just wants to explore. The boy is quieter. He takes longer to come round once I wake him up but loves snuggling.
Both are looking Algerian grey low white pinto.
All my hedgehogs are pets first and foremost; only the friendliest and healthiest are bred and all come from good family lines and are fed an extensive diet. Hoglets are handled from two weeks of age (depending on the mother) to ensure that they are happy and confident.
Prospective owners will be required to fill out a short questionnaire to ensure that my hoglets will have the best possible homes and to help me with any care queries they may have. All hoglets are sold as pet only.
They are ready to leave from the 23rd May (onwards) when they are eight weeks old, providing I am happy with their weight. They will come with a supply of their current food to enable owners to change them onto their food mix.
I have been breeding hogs since 2010 and keep stringent records of their family health and history. Both parents can be seen and handled.
Viewings are very welcome or I can provide video / photo updates.
They will be £160 each and a £30 deposit secures.
I am happy to use a Defra approved animal transport and can provide details of recommendations.
I am based in Eakring, Nottinghamshire.

They should be responsible enough to know that separating the rodent from the mother earlier results in medical and behavioural issues.
Just like any other rodents, hamsters tend to have a shorter lifespan. This is because they mature faster than most animals. In fact, some believed that a two-year-old hamster is as old as a seventy-year-old human.
Rodents as pets are widely recognised as ‘pocket pets’ due to their significantly small size. At first glance, the diminutive size of rodents can be misperceived as low maintenance furry companions. However, all kinds have their own similarities and differences both in character and needs.
Degus are interesting, playful, and easy to care for. However, you should understand the commitment and responsibility involved before getting one as a pet. Get to know them further. Read on to learn about their habits and behaviours as well as how to care for degus as pets.
