At Hedgehog Valley, we do our best to have friendly, healthy hedgehog babies who will be a joy to add to your family. If you are interested in any of these babies, please contact us for more information. Babies can be picked up in person, with prior appointment. Please read our guarantee policy so that we can answer any questions you might have before you purchase your hedgehog. To make your reservation, click here.  We take reservations on a first come, first serve basis in the order in which we receive these forms and babies must be paid for in full within 7 days of our confirmation instructions (since we don't always get to check email daily... please be patient), to hold them until they can be picked up.

We are happy to help you with any questions that we can. All of our hedgies come with a hedgebag, a 4 oz. sample of our food mix, and pedigree information (if requested). Our babies range from $150 to $175 in price. Prices include any applicable sales tax. Thank you for considering Hedgehog Valley as the source for your new prickly family member!

Due to the high cost of gas and our busy schedule, we are not currently shipping. Visitors are welcome to pick up their hedgies at our home in Iola, KS year 'round, by appointment. Please like us on facebook if you would like to follow our news feed!

Our prices are $150 on males and $175 on females. We occasionally have adult retirees available, but not often. We feel that this is quite reasonable, considering that we have seen other breeders and pet stores ask and get upwards from $200 for their hedgehogs (and most of these don't even include lineage, any supplies, or after sale support!). We offer a price break on our males because our herd typically produces a ratio of about 4 males for every 1 female. For a discussion of male/female differences, click here. We do not charge extra for any specific colors; we think they are all beautiful.

All babies come with a hedgebag, 4 oz of our food mix, follow-up support, and our guarantee.  We recommend that you purchase The Hedgehog Primer to read before you purchase your first hedgehog, and that you read through all articles in our basics section. We look forward to working with you!

We are USDA licensed (48-A-1561).


Disclaimer: Please note that we no longer work with the International Hedgehog Registry or International Hedgehog Association. If you have previously purchased a hedgehog from us and would like your pedigree information, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you with any and all information that we have.  The information that is currently in the International Hedgehog Registry regarding our animals has neither been reviewed nor verified by us, so we make no claims as to its veracity. The data that we have comes from our records, and that which was given to us by the breeder or previous owner of the animals that we have. Please see our guarantee page for more details about our policies.
