Hi Elsie, are they new born hoglets?
If they are babies don’t disturb them.
Mum can desert them if she is disturbed and then they will have no chance of survival!!
Do not lift lid to look at them just leave alone.
Mum knows what she is doing.
If you can leave out food and water they should have a good chance that mum can wean them.
The problem is they might not be big enough to survive hibernation and that is when they will need to be overwintered by a carer but if mum can give them a good start in life then hopefully they stand a good chance when going to the carer
