hedgehogs available for purchase
Welcome to our HEDGEHOGS AVAILABLE web page.  This page is designed to
highlight some of the hedgies that we have available for sale at the current time.

Originally we designed this page to showcase some of our
PINTO COLOR patterns.
   is well known in the hedgehog community for our exceptionally flashy
and well-marked PINTO HEDGEHOGS.  Like pinto horses, each animal is
slightly different and unique. By using this page to post the pictures of
some
of our
PINTO "kids", we felt that our customers would have a better idea of
what marvelous color patterns are available.

Now that this page is available, we have decided to use it to post pictures of
other animals that we currently have in stock also.  Check back often, as the
pictures and listings on this page will be constantly changing.

Hedgehogs For Sale PLEASE NOTE:  THIS PAGE IS NOT  A
COMPLETE LISTING OF ALL OF THE ANIMALS
THAT WE CURRENTLY HAVE IN STOCK. THIS
PAGE IS ONLY DESIGNED TO SHOWCASE

SOME
  OF THE SPECIAL LITTLE GUYS THAT
ARE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE.
We will make every effort to keep the postings on this page current.  However, since we
have full time jobs in addition to the hedgehog care responsibilities, it is
IMPORTANT THAT YOU CALL to confirm the availability of animals listed on this page.
hedgehog breeder
Hedgehogs For Sale ARE YOU LOOKING FOR HEDGEHOGS FOR SALE
IN ILLINOIS? OR HEDGEHOGS FOR SALE IN CHICAGO???

PLEASE NOTE:

1) Most of our hedgehogs are sold locally.
2) When sold locally, they are generally
between 7-9 weeks of age.

3) If you are out of the area, and will need for us to ship your hedgie via the airlines, we will not ship them until they are 8-10 weeks
(due to the additional stress).
So keep in mind that your wait time will be a tad longer than if you
are willing to drive to the Chicago suburbs to pick him up.
4) We sell our baby hedgehogs to
PET HOMES ONLY.

(Please no breeder or dealer calls).

The days are getting shorter...
and the leaves are starting to fall off of the trees here in Chicago.
Both us and the quilled kids know that cold WINTER nights won't be far behind!!!!!

We appologize for not being able to keep fresh
faces of our little buddies posted on this page
in recent weeks. Quite frankly, all of our baby hedgehogs have been pre-sold to folks on our
WAITING LIST ever since EARLY FALL.
Our 20+ years of raising wonderful little hedgies
and the customer referals that come with our reputation, have meant that we have
not had
many animals to showcase
on this page in awhile.

Hedgehogs For Sale


The good news is that most of our customers
who have put in a request for a baby hedgehog
AROUND THE TIME THAT SCHOOL STARTED
have already begun to bond with their new hedgie!!!

Here at HEDGEHOGS by Vickie we are
continuously endeavoring to match up
individual baby hedgies with families that are
the right fit for each other.

If this sounds like that might be you, we
encourage you to contact us as soon possible
to be placed on our
WAITING LIST.

Please realize that the length of time that you
will have to wait for your new baby hedgehog
will be minimized if you are open to a variety of
quill colors, eye colors, sexes, and price ranges
.
The more versatile you are, the shorter your wait!

We suggest that you spend some time on our COLORS PAGE and determine which hedgehog colors would be appealing to you.
We encourage you to contact us as soon as possible to be placed on our WAITING LIST
or for more information.
We are always eager to "talk hedgehogs"
and we will be happy to answer all of your
questions regarding upcoming availability.

Currently our average wait time is
4-6 weeks
(Although a few lucky folks have had animals available sooner!!!)

The common Standard color hedgehogs generally have the longest wait.

Since WE are more fascinated with the fancier colored animals, that is what we tend to
produce more of. And we like to mix up our pairings so that we have a few animals of a variety
of colors being born at any given time.

NOTE: WE ARE NOW COMMING INTO THE BEGINNING OF THE NON-TRADITIONAL
BREEDING SEASON.

Although we breed hedgies year round
LATE FALL/EARLY WINTER is not the normal breeding season for hedgehogs.

Consequently, the number of litters being born and the selection will become less abundant until
SPRING returns

If you have been considering opening up your home & heart to a baby hedgehog...

NOW
would certainly not be too soon to inquire about being added to our WAITING LIST well in advance of the HOLIDAY season!!!!

NOTICE: JUST

SNOWFLAKE HEDGIES
that were recently born .

Some of these cuties have a
HEAVY SNOWFLAKE PATTERN
like the animal pictured to the left!

WE EVEN HAVE A GROUP OF
PINTO SNOWFLAKE
babies that we are currently starting to handle and play with which are well marked.
(Similar to the animals pictured to the left)
THEY LOOK LIKE THEY WILL BE READY TO GO HOME SOON!!!

A couple of these animals are currently not promised to folks on our WAITING LIST as of this posting.
They are available on a first come, first served basis.

So if you think that maybe one of these cuties might work for you???....
CALL US TODAY!!!

 

SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING
CHRISTMAS AVAILABILITY:

Past experience has taught us that with Christmas rapidly approaching, we will get LOTS of inquires
for hedgehogs in the up coming weeks

This time of year can be especially challenging for us to have enough little hedgehogs available to meet the large number of requests for
"HOLIDAY HEDGIES".

Certainly those folks who have previously placed their name on our
WAITING LIST will be the first to be offered our little guys as they are being weaned.


IN ORDER NOT TO DISAPPOINT ANYONE,
WE STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT YOU CALL US AS SOON AS POSSIBLE TO DISCUSS THE OPTIONS FOR CHRISTMAS HEDGIES.
Depending on your needs and preferences, we may just have something that will work for you
BERORE
the hectic holiday season!

As mentioned above, we may have a couple animals NOT cuarrently spoken for that will be available to go home in the next couple of weeks.

So if you are interested in opening up your home to one of these babies...
.CALL US TODAY!!!

In past years, some customers have chosen to put our DELUXE CAGE SET UP under the tree, and postpone
the arrival of the hedgehog
until after the busy holiday season.
(We think that this can be an excellent idea that will help
eliminate stress for both you and the hedgehog)

If you would like to do that, we would be happy to help you make that happen!
JUST GIVE US A CALL.
