Living in Cornwall I have expected my hogs to hibernate later than elsewhere. There was a short period when they were not around but the past week I have seen the small, medium and large hogs coming for food and drink. I have two houses but it would seem that they are not using those as they eat and wander off.
It has been a concern of mine as to when I can clean the two houses and refresh the bedding – concern that they may be occupied with hibernating hogs has stopped me. However no video sighting of any of them entering and leaving suggests I could have a look now. I did have video recording of them going in and out of the houses in September and October.
My plan is to wait for a dry day and inspect both houses, if unoccupied I shall change the bedding and straw – is that a good plan?
