Hi Simbo65, thanks for your comments. My two have only been in the same house for a few days but I noticed on last night’s photos that the smaller one now has a few ticks. Sharing a nest must increase the possibility of this. I don’t plan to do anything about it unless it becomes much worse and, even then, I would take it to the local rescue centre to treat. It’s great to have hogs in the garden but being able to see more of them just increases the things I get anxious about! I refuse to give them names though to reinforce the fact that they are still wild animals and, mostly, have to fend for themselves!
