Hi scoobysue
I know from recent experience of weighing a hog for the first time, it can be a pretty daunting thought.
I struggled to get my head around scooping up a wild animal, but when the hoglets are really small under 450grams, weighing them and taking appropriate action can make such a difference to the little ones survival . Cutie was the first baby I had weighed and like you I was worried that the stress of weighing would have a detrimental impact. But after weighing I released Cutie who was no bigger than an orange and the weighing clearly has had no impact at all! Cutie has now more than doubled in size and has taken up residence under our big shed! A great little character!😂🤗
My advice is just bite the bullet and do it ! It could mean all the difference to the little hogs survival!
Good luck and best wishes x
