Hi StarCipher
I’m getting unusual behaviour from my female resident at the moment. She’s started to come out later and goes in and out of the hog house frequently during the night. Last night I didn’t catch her on the camera at all but I know she’s there because I heard grunting sounds about 5pm. I saw her mating about a month ago so I’m wondering if she could be pregnant or has already given birth. If so she could be out in the daylight and I’ve put out food and water in a secure feeding station today just in case. Our experts may have a take on this.
