My simplistic thought would be that if the hog was uncomfortable in its residence that it would move. Last year I had a mother move her 5 hoglets into one of my Hog houses. Presumably the hoglets were born in another nest/home somewhere in the area but the mother came across a vacant house and spent the next few months raising her young there. I have five purpose built houses and currently two of them are occupied. I am hoping that the others will be filled following the breeding season, but who knows. Maybe they might prefer a home built by themselves under some scrub vegetation. At the end of the day they are not relying on you to provide them a home and they will either take up residence that suits them and leave if they are not comfortable. Just my opinion of course.
