Last year we had one huge hog visiting the garden and as we haven’t had hogs in our garden for 40 years we were thrilled. We made a feeding station out of a large plastic container which the hog visited for about 3 weeks then disappeared. This year we have a hog living under our decking and it eats the hedgehog biscuits every night in fact it’s now got quite fat. One evening I saw two hogs standing nose to nose and making a grunting noise, not sure what that was all about. My question is how much food should we be putting out. At the moment we put 50 grams divided between 2 little bowls and it is all gone in the morning. Is this too much food as we don’t want to make the hog dependant on this foods and stop it foraging for more natural food.
