Hi williamc, thanks for that, hope you are well and your hogs. My two little ones are dainty eaters and don’t cause a bit of mess! They poo outside the box! I tend to agree with Nic here, it’s nervousness when a couple are in the box together, or, when it’s difficult to turn round and they end up with the back end in the food! Big Benny usually poos in the box but not in the food. To be honest, I’m having more trouble with massive slugs, wow, are they huge this year. We have a colony of snails, but it got a bit depleted in a very cold spell the other year. Up till then I hardly saw a slug. Snails I can live with as they are food for Blackbirds and Thrushes, but nothing wants these slugs and I think it is they that cause lung worm with the slime trail (well it does with dogs, when they follow the trail with their nose). I have made a salt box grave out of an ice cream box. Sorry, yes it’s gruesome, but I have to change all the food in the box when they’ve been leaving their trail slime all over it. It’s such a waste of food. Best wishes.
