If it's a female and has found a mate she will settle down and nest until the hoglets are around 5-6 weeks old when they'll wa...

We have written to a couple of manufacturers but they weren't very helpful ...

Hedgehogs And Electric Chicken Fencing!

Over the years there has been a large number of hedgehogs killed as a result of getting entangled in electric chicken fencing. I'm hoping that with so many chicken keepers down the lane we can lead the way in finding a solution to this problem. Have any forum members had this happen .. if so how did...

Re: Make A Hole ..Make A Difference.

If you haven't already done so, please make a hole 13cm x 13cm at the bottom of your fence for the hedgehogs to wander. Many people have seen their first hedg...

Re: How to keep Beau calm

June, have you contacted the foster mum who looked after beau to see if she can help. Even if she isn't close enough Many Tears has a big network of fosterers who would be only to happy to look after Beau for you in emergencies.

Re: Think it might be kismet .....

Good luck today Hazel. )t'
My heart skipped a beat when I started reading this as I had a beautiful grey mare called Kismet when I was growing up ..then realised I was being silly as she would be in her 50's now and Kismet wasn't this horse's name anyway. :oops: Funny how the mind works isn't it. :?
