As expected the new one sadly did not survive the night. The Prickly Bunch has made their first real weight gains all putting on over 5g each with one a fantastic 16g wow. please no more shocks from this bunch. The other female has also put its first weight gain on in over a week just 2g but its a gain. The bag is packed for the Prickles to visit hog nanny whilst we are work.

just done all the hogs, i am early tonight, may get to watch some tv for a change. Back to hog. Holy Hog has come back inside, he has lost some weight so back in so we can monitor more and check him over. Dandan, we have not seen for a while since we dismantled his home. He appears to be asleep, must be his age, he must be around 6 now. More weight gains from Lugh, prickles, munch bunch and the few Monkees i still have here. Trying to get them all out before the weather changes.

Welcome to all new peeps to the page. If you have any hog related questions please feel free, you are bound to get loads of responses. If you have any pics of homes or feeding stations you have built please let us have them. also if you havent seen our posts about our petition please feel free to sigh and share.

One of the news ones went to vets today, no broken leg but the bite marks may have done some other damage. Wounds are still infected but hopefully anitbotics will start to work. Still not eating which is the main consern at the moment. The new hog from last night is still critical but still with us. Found a few bite marks and treatment will continue.

1st Stoneyhill Rainbows have been saving all their pennies and managed to raise a fantastic amount of £70.00. This is part of our recycle jam jars for charity. eat the jam, wash the jar fill it up and if you are a group we will come and talk about our work Simple. Thats what Stoneyhill Rainbows have done so we will be booking a night to go over and talk to the group. Thanks every penny really does make a difference. Also we received a cheque from a VET practice that is quite some way away, totally unexpected and a great surprise. Thank you

7 more hogs can be moved outside for one week to acclimatize, once the 7 over the weekend leave us. The male head trauma will be going to a secure garden shortly, this is a test as he may be a release back to freedom if all goes well.

Pop-off Syndrome: A condition so named by Les Stocker of
St Tiggywinkles, “when the spiny skin is pushed up over the
hedgehog’s haunches with the orbicularis muscle springing tight and
preventing the skin from returning to its normal position. When this
happens the hedgehog’s legs are forced sideways, and anal orifice
and tail are pulled up over the back and the hedgehog is completely
helpless. Check that the hedgehog does not have a spinal injury by
pinching its toes, if there is no reaction an X ray will be necessary.
If it flinches, the orbicularis muscle can be pulled back into position
under anaesthetic. Note this is not a life threatening condition so
treat for shock, hypothermia and dehydration before adminstering an
anaesthetic. This can occur when the hedgehog gets trapped and in
its efforts to free itself, the orbicularis muscle pops over the
pelvis and the hedgehog cannot get it back in place itself.

Suitable food we give to our hogs:
Hedgehog food - a number of companies sell this : Spikes; Ark wildlife; Charnwood and number of others. We use Ark Wildlife as we formed a working relation with them early on.
You can use any small bite cat or dog food -meat flavors only.
Extras s treats: Meal worms, apples, bananas, grapes (we give ours grapes but I know other rescue units dont) Roast chicken, wet dog or cat food, sultanas, pet suit pellets, peanut kibble, sunflower hearts, Roll oats,. Caution: if you use any fruit or wet food please remove any leftovers every morning to avoid flys. I know there will be loads more ideas about to be posted but this is our daily stock items for them.

This is two of the Prickly Bunch. The three remaining out of the 6 have caused us so many sleepless nights, They have been orphaned, ill and finally these two are doing very well. We had to remove the third smaller one (Blue) due to not gaining as much weight.

As a result of three builders in Bromsgrove saying yes to our Access for Hedgehogs we have been contact by a local paper wanting quotes. He has a great way of putting a spin on this.
Cant wait to see what he is doing with it.
