Hi, I’m in my second year of hog caring. I have two young hogs in my care at the moment, I think they are from the same litter as they were found within 100 yards of each other and weigh 430 and 436 grams. I have one of their parents hibernating in my shrubs, which I believe is one of the two hogs I overwintered last year.
I use wood based cat litter in their cages to help keep the smell down. Their food is supplemented with Spike moist hedgehog food available from most pet stores.

Keep at it, the results are rewarding
