We’re still releasing rescue hogs, 3 this week all first year, and would expect them to continue to explore and forage as long as the weather remains comparatively mild. I did a hedgehog care course at Vale Wildlife Hospital earlier this week and their view is that as long as the temperatures generally remain around 5 degrees or more at night the conditions are fine for hogs if they have somewhere dry to nest. Good luck with your hogs!
