I just have a question, why do have to get one this week? if you don't get one this week you said that you couldn't get for awhile, why is that? I am just asking because I find it kind of odd that if you can't get one this week, that you may not be able to get one for awhile is all Is it that you are traveling, going to school, etc.? Sorry for being nosey!!
there are breeders all over the USA, but I honestly don't know of any in MD or DE, visit www.hedgehogvalley.com and maybe you can contact them, because I do believe they ship, but could be wrong!

Between school and your job you have enough time to care for it right? They're pretty easy, but make sure you'll have time to clean the cage, clean the hedgie and such.

If you only had time to get him now, how do you expect to have time to go out and buy food for him and take him to the vet's?

We bought our little girl there and she had babies the next day. LOL look the hedgie over really well. I would recommend a male (the males have belly buttons the females do not) I think most of the females are preggers. We picked one up for a friend a few days after we got ours and that female is also preggers. My brother and SIL also got one and she is pregers too.

Please do not buy the junk that they call hedgehog food that they sell. It is crap and the hedgies hate it. They love Chicken Soup For The Cat Lovers Soul mixed with 8in1 Hedgehog food. We add a bunch of other high quality fooods in ours now.

Blue Buffalo Adult Cat Lite
Purina Indoor Formula (used as a filler to the mix)
Maxx Catt Roasted Chicken Flavor
Wellness Adult Cat

Which store are you visiting? I liked the Columbia Store a little better but it was very crowded. The Annapolis store was bigger and the hedgehogs were right by the outside entrance. The Hedgies are not caged by sex there.

Well, I only have time to go and find a hedgehog and things for it this week cuz my whole family is off!!!! I am not allowed to go and buy things, especially a pet, without my parents consent... For school, I go everyday from 8-12:40... For work, I only work 3 week days from 4-7:30, and Saturday usually from8-4 or 11-7:30... I have plenty of spare time as you can see!!!! Trust me, I love these little things as much as you guys do!!!!! Except I dont have mine yet!!!! lol!!!!! I appreciate your concern!!!!!!

Hedgies are nice pets if you take care of them and make sure you spend time with them.If left alone for awhile with no inter action can cause them to be frightened and may bite.
I got 4 they were 2 boys and 2 girls.I gave one of the boys to my sister and one of the boys to my daughter and kept the 2 girls for myself each has their own home.
My daughter didn't spend much time with hers and he bit herso I traded her one of my girls for him.He is very friendly with me so far.
