My name is Morgan, I'm a veterinary technician and I've been a hedgehog owner since 2011. I started breeding hedgehogs in early 2016, starting with a single breeding pair and growing as I gained more experience. My herd and I live just outside of Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, along with my two dogs, four cats, and many chickens!
My hedgehogs are my babies, they all get high quality food, treats, toys, and vet care. I use a combination of ferret nation cages and bin cages, and have a separate room in my home for them. Hedgehogs are special to me and although they're not the pet for everyone, I love to show others how great and rewarding they can be.
Why adopt from a breeder
When you buy an animal from the pet store, there's a chance you may end up with a sick, inbred, or pregnant animal with no information on it's background. The person selling you the animal may not have the correct knowledge to properly assist you with your hedgehog's needs. Buying from a breeder gives you the security of knowing where your pet comes from and having lifetime support should you have any questions or concerns.
Since the gene pool for hedgehogs is rather limited, I only breed pedigreed hedgehogs. My hedgehogs have at least 5 generations of tracked ancestors, which allows me to avoid inbreeding.
