Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Not eating new food Reply To: Not eating new food


It does take a little while for hogs to change their diet especially when they’ve been fed mealworms but they eventually realise that food is food and will eat it. Last night, for example, my lot found their usual dry Spikes in the usual place but I’d made a new feeding station since the old one had succumbed to UV radiation and been broken by a cat jumping on it. New box = hogs don’t like it = not going in there! They’ll be in it tonight though, absolutely guaranteed. They just don’t like change!
