Thank you for your interest in our baby hedgehogs.   Adopting from us is very easy and in under 5 minutes you can be guaranteed a baby hedgehog!


Easy To Follow Step-By-Step Instructions 

Step 1:                   HABITAT

We are unlike most breeders.  We have habitat expectations. Our goal is to find forever homes for these fun little hedgehog babies and we believe the key to a happy hedgehog is their home!  So first and foremost  we require the habitat to be a minimum 8 square feet, it must have proper ventilation and be able to hold bedding.   We understand that finding the right habitat is time consuming and can be challenging as most pet stores sell hamster cages and habitats that are too small for hedgehogs.   We stock 3 kinds of habitats in our store.  We also have a Habitat Starter Kit that includes everything a hedgehog needs for life!

Our habitat kit includes:

a 2 foot x 4 foot habitat with modified food tray that includes stainless steel food and water bowls, a 12 inch solid wheel, a large igloo (or cuddle sack), a bag of bedding, a custom cut litter box, a bag of litter, a litter scoop, and a bag of food.


Step 2:                   DEPOSIT 

Otsego Hedgehogs requires a $50 deposit.  The deposit instantly reserves and guarantees you a baby hedgehog. The $50 is deducted off the total price and the balance is due at your adoption appointment. If you are purchasing the Habitat Starter Kit from us, and you are ready to place your deposit than you can use this quick form to instantly pay the deposit.  The deposit is non-refundable.

$50.00 deposit + $3.69 tax + $1.50 cc fee = $55.19

Step 3: 

Once your deposit is paid, you are guaranteed a baby!   

You have up to one year to choose a baby, however if you are ready now proceed to the next step. 

Step 4:                  PICKING YOUR BABY!!!!

To choose a baby, visit our available baby page where we post videos and picking pictures of babies that have been weaned and ready for their new homes.  When you have identified a baby you would like to adopt please text Kristal the name of the mama and description of the baby.  It will be marked SOLD within minutes and you can proceed to Step 5.  If you do NOT see a baby your heart desires, you can easily wait until the next litter is posted online.  We want you to have the perfect baby so you have up to one year

1)  Insects:   Hedgehogs are insectivores... insects help them to digest processed dry catfood.  We recommend starting your baby with our special blend of INSECTIVORE FOOD that is super healthy .... Like formula for a baby!  It is a blend of Mazuri, Mealworms, Soldier Flys, Soldier Fly Larvae, Crickets and Purina.  This blend is freeze dried so no refrigeration is needed. Once they have consumed a large container of the insectivore food they can be switched over to catfood (see our care page for recommended brand) it is imortant to supplement their diet by scattering 8- 10 insects in your habitat daily (Not in the food dish),  Hedgehogs will enjoy hunting for them.  We have Freeze Dried Mealworms and Freeze Dried Soldier Fly Larvae available in our store. A large container will last about 2 -3 months.  A hedgehog can become constipated and live in pain without insects in their daily diet.  Please understand the importance of bugs throughout your hedgehogs entire life!

2) Heat Pads:  Depending on the temperature of your home, you may also need a heat source for your hedgehog. Hedgehogs need temperatures of 72 - 78 degrees at all times to prevent hibernation (both in the wintertime when our homes can be drafty and also in the summertime when we run air conditioners) Please watch the video on the top of our care page (in the red section regarding placement of heat pads)
