Home Forums Champions’ chat New Hog House – Some Questions on Suitability Reply To: New Hog House – Some Questions on Suitability


Hi Nic, just managed to clean out the original hog house that I got last year which didn’t have a lid, it’s been occupied until now, hence why I couldn’t clean it out last month.

It took a lot longer to clean out than the square house that I got from the hospital, but managed to do it. Just waiting for it to dry out so I can put some newspaper down and a bit of hay.

But so much easier and quicker to clean when they have a lid, but don’t want to get rid of it, as it seems to be the preferred choice as it’s rarely unoccupied.

Getting another two houses from the hospital soon, square with a lid on, with the tunnel inside rather than outside. Hope they will get used, but if they don’t it will be good to keep some spare in my shed for when I get the rescued hogs back from the hospital if need be.
