Hedgehogs: USDA Licensed - 84-A-0176
Here in Tiskilwa, Illnois, we breed for temperament first. We try to breed to well mannered moms and dads to produce naturally social hogs that react well to human handling. We are also breeding for a variety of colors that are of show quality. All hedgehogs come with a starter kit. Our starter kit includes a Hedgehog Care book, Small fleece, toy, and a small supply of food.
Our Hedgehogs are predominately of the Algerian line with generally nice masks and cheek patches.
The Hedgehogs of First Harmony Farms
Bear came to us from Hawkeye Hedgies. He is a gorgeous guy that throws amazingly dark faces on his babies. He is one of the largest here at FHF. He is a mellow guy that will swim and play but also spends a lot of time just lazing on the beach.
Bishop is our newest baby. Although we bred to his sire to keep a light colored male, Bishop demanded to be kept. Starting at three weeks old he would come out and climb in your hand to be picked up. He follows your hand around the cage begging to be picked up. His short face and badger stripes were too cute to let go so he will stay here to sire gorgeous babies for us.
Bully was just a baby that I couldn't give up no matter how many people begged. He has one black eye and is a LOVER. He is just naturally a friendly guy, even as a tiny baby he did not even try to ball up. His eye patch is fading with age, but the name still seemed fitting.
Ceasar is the sweetest male at FHF. Ceasar has never met a stranger. He didn't even bother to put up his quills for his microchip which is painful. He is a smaller male and fairly active. Ceasar has thrown some of the sweetest babies here at FHF. Ceasar has even sired a few hogs that are doing great at the shows. Thanks to Dreamflower Meadows for this great guy.
Cola was too sweet to not keep. He has mismatched eyes and is perfect for light line. He is a character and loves to play with toys. He is commonly running on his wheel with a toy in his mouth.
Dodge is one of our new Boys from Hog Heaven Hedgehogs. He is a small, sweet boy. Dodge is very playful. He loves to swim and run on his wheel. He will even sleep on his wheel at times and has even been seen sleeping on his back on his wheel and sprawled out with his krinkle ball beside him.
Dumbo was purchased from Hedgehog Grove in Canada. He was purchased for his pedigree and great personality. He was named immediately when we met in person and saw his huge dumbo ears. He is a very sweet boy that will hopefully sire many babies here at First Harmony Farms.
Ford is a mellow guy. He is one of those rare hogs that loves to come to the front of the cage and have his nose scratched. Ford is active on his wheel but will still sit and cuddle when held. He had a black face as a baby, but it has lightened with age. We are hoping he will sire some beautiful light babies while he is here.
Guy is a very petite boy we purchased from Hog Heaven Hedgehogs. He has a great personality and is quite a character. He loves to swim and LOVES his toys. He is commonly carrying a toy around and even sleeps with his toys.
Grizz is a sweet boy out of my last Panda litter. He reminded us the most of Panda , who was always a favorite here, so he had to stay. He is a very playful boy that talks while he swims. He loves his wheel and even sleeps on it sometimes.
Hunter is from Hog Heaven Hedgehogs in New York. He is a big boy and fairly mellow. He seems to stay on the heavier side and although active, he is no where near as hyper as the others.
Kellogg came from Beach Bum Hedgehogs. He is a nice dark guy. Kellogg loves his crinkle balls and any toy that makes noise. He is not a hyper hedgehog, but does like to play some. Kellogg likes to swim but will also just float around.
Malibu was purchased from Hedgehog Grove in Canada. Although older when we bought him, I am hoping he will still have many years here at First Harmony Farms to pass on his great traits.
Mayhem is a gorgeous split face silver from Victorino's Hedgehog Garden. He is super sweet and a fairly mellow boy. He enjoys wheeling, swimming, and playing with toys but is not extremely hyper when being held.
Peanut was purchased from Hedgehog Grove in Canada. He was purchased for his pedigree and great personality. He was named immediately when we met in person and saw his huge dumbo ears. He is a very sweet boy that will hopefully sire many babies here at First Harmony Farms.
Pepsi is a gorgeous hog from Victorino's Hedgehog Garden. He is not a pinto but is a solid brown with a white face and mismatched eyes. He has a very short face and looks like a baby, even as an adult. He is a sweet guy and loves to cuddle. He is a moderate energy boy who likes swimming, wheeling, and playing with toys.
Phantom is a small, dark boy that is supersweet. He never even raises his quills and is a perfect hog to handle. Even our 2 year old can handle him comfortably. Everyone who meets him, loves him. He has a short face that makes him still look like a baby. He is a dark guy and had a solid black stomach and legs as a baby. His mottling on the back legs still goes all the way up to the quill line and his stomach still has large dark patches. He is a gorgeous split face boy and we hope he will throw as gorgeous of babies as his sire.
Ratchet is a dark male from Hedge Quill Hogs. He is a small, sweet guy that is very active. He loves to play with toys and on his wheel. He does swim some, but also spends a lot of time on the beach relaxing. He also believes that he can hitch a ride on other hogs backs when swimming and has to swim alone.
Swagger is a gorgeous black boy from Beach Bum Hedgehogs. He is turning into a sweet and mellow boy. He seems to prefer lazing than swimming unless he is with other hogs then he follows them around the tub. He seems to like his toys but does not carry them around as much as the others. Swag insists that he can sleep in his food dish, despite being a big boy now and falling over the edges. We are hoping he will throw us some gorgeous dark baby's in the next few years.
Teegan is everything we could want from his mother. He has flashy markings and an extremely outgoing personality. He is one of those rare hogs that greets you at the front of the cage and wants picked up. He is owned by a 6 year old but will also sire some litters here at First Harmony Farms.
Trapper is on loan from Susan's Hawkeye Hedgies. Love the babies this boy produces. Great masks, short faces, and amazing personalities. I will be keeping some daughters from this guy!
7up is a sweet girl. She never startles and is amazingly curious. She is very calm for a hedgie. She LOVES to swim and never gets out of the water unless we force her.
Arial was purchased from Hazel Mountain Hedgehogs in Colorado. She is a sweet girl that will hopefully fit in well with our herd.
August is just like her brother Bishop. She is very social and will run to the front of the cage to be picked up. She has a very short, sweet face. She also got badger stripes like her brother. She is out of one of our best mothers and we hope she will follow in her mother's footsteps.
This dark grey girl is very easy going. She is on the mellow side and keeps on weight easily. She will startle and snuffle/pop when scared, especially by big dogs but otherwise rarely says a word. She warms up to people easily and does great away from home. She likes to swim and play with toys. Benny is one of the best producers at First Harmony Farms, producing a litter of 7 her first time and following that with a litter of 5. She is a very sweet mom and her babies all have her personality. Benny is one of the largest hogs at FHF
Bijou is a super sweet girl. She reminds me of her mom, Kodi, a great deal. She was her mom's little shadow and was too cute to not keep. She has turned into a great mother, throwing super sweet babies.
Beauty had the darkest belly we had ever seen as a baby. Her stomach and legs were solid black and the color over the shoulders went all way to her quill line. She also has a short, adorable face and sweet personality. She comes from pinto lines, but decided to snowflake as she got older so she is now a part of our snowflake lines. Beauty is a very calm girl.
Bliss is a very serene hog. She is very calm for a hedgie. She will play but usually seems to just check things out and move on. Not much phases this girl.
Busy is a very sweet pinto. She has some of the loudest marking we have ever seen here. She is easily distinguishable from the other hogs. Busy is a very active girl and rarely sits still. She never bothers to quill but can be hard to hold when on the move. She loves her toys and commonly runs on her wheel with a toy in her mouth. She is a very small hog. She is also a top producer here at FHF. She produces large litters that all have her active personality.
Canon is a naturally sweet girl that we decided to keep as a part of our herd. She was named Canon due to her obsession with coming straight up to the lens of our Canon camera to lick at it, making it very difficult to get any good pictures of her.
Cat is a sweet girl that loves to pose for pics. This girl has a blast posing for the camera. I swear she thinks she is a model. She is a fun girl that was too funny to not keep. She has decided that a Dixie cup is her favorite toy.
Chant is a cross of some of my favorite hogs. She has her parent's cute face and great personality. She is a fairly easy going girl and is a complete cuddler except when in the water. This girl LOVES to swim.
Danica came from Hazel Mountain Hedgehogs in Colorado. She escaped her kennel on the trip here and spent the trip with Andrea up front.
Daq is a supersweet girl that loves people. She has a very cute face and throws a wide variety of face markings, including that rare reverse blaze.
Demi is a sweet mama. She is very petite like her sire, Mickey. She is also very active and likes to play. She has very flashy markings.
Dew is a super sweet girl. She has one of the most beautiful faces we have ever seen. She is super cuddly and easy going.
Dharma is a very sweet and curious girl. Not much scares this girl. Many hogs will bring their visor down when they hear or see that camera flash. She was more the type to come and start nibbling on it to investigate it. She is on the smaller side. Dharma is a great mom, raising every litter. Her babies are sweet since she is so willing to show them off.
Dixie was kept on as a breeder due to her stunning color and amazing personality. She is very lid back. When loose she likes to run around and will spend a great deal of time playing with a Dixie cup. She also believes that hedgehogs should not be scared of heights and will divebomb off of any counter or couch. She is quite a brave and curious hedgie.
Dori is a reverse pinto. She is a mellow girl that prefers to be a couch potato and get on the plump side. She does run in her wheel but mostly just lounges around. She has been a great producer and has thrown litters up to 7 in size. She has also thrown some very flashy markings.
Feature is an exact replica of her mother. She has very similar coloring and conformation. She has a very similar demeaner and is a very sweet girl. I am hoping she will bring as much to the herd as her mother did.
Gabby is a super sweet girl. She is a very calm cuddiler. This little girl never raises a quill, even for her microchipping. She can easily be held by anyone. She is a great producer, throwing nice sized litters. She keeps her babies at the front of the cage and lets us play with them from birth.. She had her second litter while we were seeing appointments and everyone got to see her have the babies. Nothing phases this girl.
Gem is a high white female. She came out of a litter of 7 babies that all had at least partially white faces. She is a moderately active girl that LOVES to play with her toys. She also likes sleeping with all of her toys cuddled up with her.
Honey is a gorgeous pinto with her fathers short sweet nose and her mothers coloring. She is very social and rarely balls up at all. She is a fairly mellow girl that likes being held. She will swim but spends a lot of time relaxing on the beach.
This tiny girl is as sweet as they come. She will run up to you and crawl into your hands to be picked up. This girl never quills, snuffles or pops. She is a very sweet, mellow girl with an beautiful set of quills. She is even tolerant of my two year old son handling her. Ice is a perfect replica of her father, Ceasar.
Jazz is a sweet, dark girl. She has produced our largest litter of nine here at FHF. She is a fairly active girl that likes to make her nest out of her crinkle balls.
This sweet girl never puts up her quills, no matter what is going on. She runs to the front of the cage and will immediately come to people. When loose she will come and socialize with other people and animals rather than being alone. She is active, but not hyper. She is very curious and loves to explore and play with things in the environment. She is a small hedgie with heavy snowflake markings and is prone to keeping herself skinny.
Kaylee is a beautiful chocolate girl. She has a very thick set of quills. She is of moderate energy and very sweet. She will quill up some when startled but calms very quickly. She does well away from home. She is a swimming queen, rarely taking breaks and upset when you take her out of the water.
Kodi is from Hazel Mountain Hedgehogs. She is a sweet girl that is very similar to her mother in looks. She will hopefully be a great addition to our herd.
Lexus is a very sweet girl. She rarely puts her quills up and likes everyone she meets. Although very active, she does not love swimming. She will swim a few laps and then relax on the beach. This hyperactive girl is on the small side, but makes up for it in attitude. She is a dive bomber from heights and never even slows down to look over the edge before running on over. She is always the first to eat and will push others off the wheel if she wants it. She also likes to steal toys and generally pester the other hedgehogs.
Love is a beautiful girl that is medium energy. She tries to carry all the papers on my desk around. She seems to be a very organized hog and really hates my clutter. Most of it gets pushed off the desk.
Marti is a sweet girl. She was the least flashy of her litter but had the best personality of the bunch. Her mismatched ears still make her easy to tell from the others. She is a medium energy girl that loves her krinkle balls.
Mocha is a small, playful girl. She is probably the most playful here at FHF. She is always carrying around a crinkle ball and loves to tear them up to make her nests out of. Her babies also love their toys.
Nike is a favorite here at First Harmony Farms. She never raises a quill and loves being handled. She will climb her cage to come out to meet people. When she did get loose in our house as a baby, we just sat on the floor and out she came to get some attention. She was just way too cute to sell so she stayed on as a breeder. Nike has been proving herself as a great mother. She will even allow people to come and handle the newborns without so much as a snuffle. She just lays on her side feeding the babes as you take one out to show people. She is also passing her perfect personality on to her offspring.
Orca is out of our last Panda litter. She is a very sweet girl that rarely raises a quill. She loves to swim and refuses to leave the water until we force her to. She not only swims on the top of the water but likes swimming under water as well. She is truly a fish when in the tub, which is how she got her name.
Peace reminds me a great deal of her mom. She is a very calm and sweet hedgie. She likes to play but is not hyper like so many hedgehogs are. She does not startle like most hedgies do.
Puma is a beautiful dark pinto. She looks and acts like her mother, who is a favorite here at FHF. She is a petite, active girl. We are hoping she will be as good of a producer as her mother is.
Reebok is a stunning dark girl that has her mother's personality. She is one of our sweetest at First Harmony Farms. She is also keeping her dark coloring as she ages, where many fade by the time they are full grown. We are hoping she will pass both her personality and coloring onto her babes.
Roxi was not a planned purchase, but due to her exceptional personality and adorable dumbo ears, she was a keeper. I am hoping she will pass both of these traits on to her offspring. Thanks to Hazel Mountain Hedgehogs for raising such a great girl.
Sita is an amazingly sweet girl who rarely raises a quill. Although we had not planned to keep her, she was too sweet to let go. She is an active girl and loves sleeping in her food dish. We hope she passes her amazing temperament and color on to her babies. If she is as good as her mother, we will see some large litters out of this girl.
Sketcher is a great addition to our herd. She is a photogenic girl who is always in weird positions. She loves sleeping in her food bowl and occasionally on her back in her wheel. She has a very sweet disposition and even lets my 2 and 4 year old carry her around. We hope she will pass this on to her babies.
Vision is a mellow girl. She is not overly active and is prone to being heavy. She is very OCD about her environment. When things are moved out of place she immediately puts them back. If you move her towel she moves it back immediately. It is fun to move her things and listen to her talk while she moves it all back into place. She can take a minute to warm up completely to new things. She never balls up but keeps her quills partially up. Although very talkative (squeeking) when rearranging her bedding, she never seems to snuffle or pop. She has a very thick, beautiful set of quills.
