Hi Reuser,

It sounds like you’re doing all the right things for your hogs. My local spiny mob have 2 Riverside Woodcraft houses in my garden which have both been used every winter for the last 4. They are superbly built houses, the hogs take to them very quickly and have always survived in them. I’ve also had two lots of hoglets born in them!

Mine also dine on Spikes Dry which they attack with considerable gusto but obviously, being radicalised hedgehogs, they throw it around a lot just for devilment and to give me something to do.

Please don’t forget to give them dishes of water too. They drink a LOT (which may explain their unruly behaviour).
