Be aware that foxes do on occasion kill hedgehogs. Also cubs, in particular, might play with hedgehogs and damage their back legs.

If I had foxes around, I would try to create a secure place for the hogs to feed and not feed them beside foxes. Apparently the method foxes use to kill hogs is wait until they unroll and then pounce. If foxes and hogs are eating side by side, the hog will already be unrolled, so a sitting target should the fox decide to try hedgehog for a change.
