This evening we have admitted four little hoglets ranging from 46 - 58 grams with the worse fly strike I have ever seen! Sadly we found mum dead outside the finders home! They are v dehydrated but they are feeding well! We have spent four hours getting rid of the fly eggs, there eyes and ears full! Poor little mites, heartbreaking! We are up throughout the night feeding little and often!

Our new litter of four have had a good night of feeding and sleeping! There is no evidence of fly eggs on three but the smallest boy passed two eggs at 3.00am! All we can hope is that they have all been passed. We are hoping to locate and get rid before they hatch! We are checking the eyes every feed and we think we have cleared them. So far five hours of clearing fly eggs!
Busy day yesterday with seven admissions! The last being a little weaner weighing 150 grams!

Hoglets galore, they are coming in thick and fast another five today with another litter of four that were coming in but have since disappeared! We are sure mum has been killed as there is a dead hedgehog near the finders home. Bet they will be in tomorrow! 10 hoglets and two adults admitted since yesterday! V busy.

We have even caught out by the late arrival of hoglet season. I guess the cold Spring has had an impact. I was due to go on holiday today but it is all hands to the deck so no holiday for us! Talking to other careers yesterday everyone is in the same boat!
If you see baby hedgehogs out in the day please phone your local rescue for advice these little ones require immediate rescue! Fly strike is a major problem this time of year and the current heat wave is fuelling the problem!

Morning all thank you for your interest in Prickles, people are asking for updates already this morning!!!
The tiny dehydrated chap who was admitted last evening is feeding well every two hours, we have fed him during the night as we want him to be stable ASAP! The four we are hand feeding every three hours are thriving! The two litters of four that we are hand feeding three times a day are almost weaned! We have two lots of mum and babies in and another 24 hoglets who are weaned! The 15 adults we have in are responding to treatment! The little girl we admitted last evening is off to the vets she has some nasty wounds on her!
Today we have mum and two babies coming in this morning and a couple are still trying to catch a little one whose mum has been killed!!

Another busy evening! This terribly dehydrated little man came in a hour ago, 47 grams! We are hydrating him and feeding during the night! Another one on its way in with a infected leg and another that is yet to be caught, sadly his mum and a litter mate have been killed by a dog!

We are going through the large litters of hoglets today!! Some are getting too big to be together. We are hand feeding fourteen at 9.30am as these require topping up! Mums and babies are having new nesting boxes and we are fully prepared for new admissions.

Mum and two babies admitted today, they were being held captive in a run in a garden! The female was taken from the wild two weeks ago and subsequently gave birth! Please leave these little mammals to be wild they are not domestic pets and don't deserve to be contained!

Prickles is currently caring for 61 hedgehogs many of these are hoglets that are weaned! We also have our share of adults. We have admitted two juveniles in the past four days that have been found swimming in a pond and a swimming pool, thirsty looking for water! One of our litter of four is v poorly, she came in heavily infested with fly strike and our fear is there are stray maggots inside!!! Vets first thing. Have a gut feeling today is going to be another busy day!

A tricky evening ahead, off to rescue a mum who is giving birth in a run in a garden, she was picked up two days ago from a road and has been kept by the finder! She doesn't have a good nest! We will lift the nest and hope all will be well! A little one just in, we already have her litter mate and they are both covered in a number of infected wounds! We think rats have got into the nest which is under decking in a garden!

Well I almost got away with it! Sadly mum has rejected her two hoglets, one was found dead and the other was still alive but she didn't want to feed it. I am not surprised due to the stress of the conditions she was kept in. I am hand feeding but bringing on new borns is beyond difficult!!!
