    "**Do not give them bread and milk**. They cannot digest the bread and cows milk gives hedgehogs very bad diarrhoea. Many hedgehogs die because of this wrong diet."

    Linky

    "Tinned Cat, Dog, Puppy or Kitten food. They prefer Chicken flavours best. Do not give Fish flavours
    Cat or Kitten Biscuits. Only give meat flavoured biscuits. Do not give Fish flavours. The premium brands like Royal Canin, Burns, Hills, James Wellbeloved, or Iams are much better for them (The "cheaper" common brands contain much more cereal and are not so nutritious)"

    If you want a hedgehog balloon then yes bread and milk.

    dont feed them at all. They cope very well themselves being wild animals!

    You wont be doing them any favours whatsoever by feeding them.
