    There are many different treats you can give them. I think there is an article on what you can give them as treats. Do not give the freeze dried or the like, I believe that those are technically unhealthy for them.

    Yup, there are some good articles on here about treats and food. Freeze dried is okay, it's good fiber, but not as good as fresh (think beef jerky verses a nice juicy steak). I believe the worry with the freeze dried is that they can get a blockage if you give them to much..... but then moderation is key with all treats.

    Zoedia is right-a lot of the hedgies do like freeze dried crickets. Don't worry about a mix of treats-just find one of two now that he enjoys. There are treat articles at the top of this forum section that can help you out.

    There are lots of suggestions for treats in this article... http://www.hedgehogworld.com/content...edgehog-s-Diet

    My hedgie loooooves cheese (he only gets teeny pieces as a rare treat!), watermelon, and egg. I have tried some other fruits but he wasn't all that keen.
