Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Will they be ok for winter? Reply To: Will they be ok for winter?


I rang a local wildlife rescue recently over a very small hog which was visiting our garden. They told me to keep feeding a high protien cat biccy and they will soon fatten up. Over the last 3 weeks he has had good wieght gain looking at him. They told me some heggies if its a mild winter may not hibernate until December time and keep an eye on him. If it gets particularly cold then call them.
