Leucistic. What is the difference between albino and leucistic? Because albinism affects all melanin production in an animal's cells, this means that partial albinism cannot exist. This phenomenon is known as leucism, the partial loss of all types of pigmentation, including carotenoids. Leucism causes white coloration, white patches, spots, or splotches on the skin or fur.
Thank you Coastal Quills for helping us grow our herd!
All the way from Texas. A huge shout out to Coastal Quills Hedgehogs.
Not bragging, but I sure am sweet.
My Dad is Calvin and my Mama is Shaymin. I think I look more like my Dad.
General Waiting List
Please be sure you are 100% committed to adding any hedgie to your family.
Amazing little Mama and so ready for retirement, peace, and quiet, lol.
I may not look like it, but I love to run on my wheel. I'm just a big O boy.
I do prefer to be alone. However; I will let you feed me and keep me warm. ;)
I think I was born to just be an Aunt ;) I would really love some privacy and a special place to call my own.
Reserve me on the waiting list above!
My name was Minnie now I am Petunia.
Loving her new home!
Enjoying his new life.
Still cute as a button.
Has a spoiled life.
Motto; Eat Sleep Play Repeat.
Loves to explore!
Besties with his human.
Likes to re-arrange her house.
Roughly about 10-15 mealworms for snacking. Live super worms daily are best.
Be careful with wire cages hedgehogs love to climb. It also doesn't keep the heat source confined. Coroplast sheets are the best way to add to the inside of a cage to prevent climbing. Make sure to add sides to any (not recommended) ramps to avoid falling.
Facebook has many groups like Hedgehog Talk and others that can offer a lot of information and valuable resource. There are so many ideas and opinions; do what makes you and your hedgie happy. Make sure your heat source is not emitting light. Hedgehogs need 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of dark. A good temp is a minimum of 76 to 78, sometimes even 80 and can vary on your hedgehogs' needs.
Please ensure your hedgehog's wheel is safe. As long as your hedgehog has play times, they do not have to have it every night. The Carolina Storm Wheel is the best!
Be sure to use a creamy wash and NOT shampoo. Your hedgehog does not need a bath regularly; once a month at best. Foot baths daily are okay and a great way to bond.
Purina Sensitive Skin & Stomach and a 50/50 mix of Purina Tender Selects (15% Crude Fat) are what we use.
Blue Buffalo is also a good brand for hedgies. Around 32% protein and Crude Fat 16%.
Paper bedding is a great way to go. Don't forget to spot clean. Fleece is okay to watch out for toenails catching on the fabric.
Either under the wheel or a ferret litter box in the corner. Eight out of ten hedgehogs can be litter trained.
Plastic bins minimum 110qt is preferred. You can drill holes for the water bottle if needed.
Not all hedgies are cuddles bugs; you might feel discouraged with "bonding". Giving them an article of clothing with your scent is a good idea. Hold them on your lap while you watch a movie or give them a little foot bath to explore. As long as your hedgehog is warm, watered, fed, and their nails are kept trimmed; you are doing an amazing job and your hedgie IS happy.
You can see the clear plexiglass 12" high to prevent climbing, paper pellets under the wheel, heat source, hide, and thermostat.
Most wire cages are NOT recommended due to the hedgehog's ability to climb and can get hurt. Coroplast 10-12" high is a great way to prevent climbing and help keep the heat in.
You may find your hedgehog anointing, They use their spit as a way to mask their scent and get into all kinds of positions to accomplish their mission. A strange way to sort of camouflage and blend into their environment. It can also be new smells or tastes that intrigue them to do this. I also always wash my hands with Dawn dish soap before and after every time I handle my precious little hedgehogs.
Payment and Pricing
Hedgehogs start at $250 and more for unique markings. There is a $75 non-refundable deposit to be put on the waiting list or reserve a specific hedgehog. This deposit is towards the purchase price.
Pick-up or Pet Transport
Please bring a carrier to take your baby home. If choosing Pet Transport, I can help you set that up at your expense. Prices can vary, but usually around $150 and up.
Health Guarantee and Warranty
As babies grow, their color and temperament can change. We guarantee (to the best of our knowledge) that all baby hedgehogs are healthy and free of any parasites when leaving CBH.
Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome (WHS) isn't fully understood. The Only Way to know for sure is to have this confirmed via necropsy by a licensed professional. Many experienced individuals and veterinarians may say or diagnose your hedgehog with WHS. Again, the Only Way to confirm this and know 100% for sure, is if a necropsy is performed. If your hedgehog has passed due to WHS with a confirmed necropsy we will gladly offer you a new baby free of charge.
Company Policies and Support
We are here for you for the life of your hedgehog. If (for any reason) you are no longer to care for your hedgehog, we will gladly take your hedgehog back at no cost to us. Again they are sold to you as a pet and not for breeding.
Buying for children
Please keep in mind that children can often change their minds or often will lose interest. When purchasing for a child you need to be just as invested (if not more). Hedgehogs can be quite an adjustment for children/families/or first-time hedgehog owners.
Please do not impulse buy.
Next batch coming soon!
We have another Hedgehog litter due soon, so we'll be announcing the take-home dates soon!
All Hedgehogs are pedigreed. I will be expanding my heard from other breeders all over the United States.
