I’ve tried a few different foods and I seem to have found one that the hogs around here like.

I put out Tesco chicken small dog dry dog food (needs to be for small dogs so that it’s small enough for the hogs to eat).
Occasionally, I will put out some cooked chicken, cooked potatoes/rice or cooked vegetables. I only put small amounts of these out, not every night, and always with the dry dog food option. Sometimes, I’ll add some tinned dog food too.

But I always make sure that there is plenty of fresh water in the feeding station & elsewhere in the garden.
I have 2 large plant saucers that I seem to be constantly filling with water. My original plan was that the hogs could have a drink or a paddle in them but it seems that the birds like to have baths in them too (hence the never-ending refilling).
