Hi rosieyvonne

That’s really good news. Two of the hoglets are over the required weight of 450g already and the third is very close. If you keep feeding sounds as if they will have a pretty good chance to survive.

We all need to be aware that hibernation is a very dangerous time for hogs in general and there is no guarantee that any hog will survive even if it is heavy enough or an adult. But offering them good quality food (cat/dog/hog food) and water in the run up to hibernation has got to be a help. (Water should be left out all year, including winter.) But also leaving them alone in their nests is very important. If they are ‘woken up’ from hibernation it uses up their reserves of fat.

Good luck with them all.
