    Bathing Mom?

    So Delilah gave birth about four weeks ago (four weeks will be tomorrow), and she has something on her quills (I think it is dried pooh ). Will it be okay to give her a bath?

    It should be fine. Just do it gently, and use an old soft toothbrush, or cloth.
    Can't wait to get my own hedgie friend!

    You can try to bathe her but she will probably just do it again while she has the babies

    Also I have another question; When is it safe to put her wheel back?

    You should probably just clean her with her personal sponge, or towel. Nothing too much to stress her for now And you could start introducing the wheel to the little piggies, but under supervision please
