Hi cfhenson

Welcome to the Forum!

How lucky having a Mum and 3 youngsters there!

If you are feeding hog food, the meaty ones are generally considered better, but cat or dog food or cat/kitten biscuits are also fine. If you haven’t already, I would definitely give mealworms a miss. They are junk food – not much nutritional value and also an imbalance of phosphorous and calcium so that calcium can be leached from the bones. Water is best left available, all day every day.

Glad to hear the hogs are still visiting. The hoglets will probably remain smaller than Mother hog until after hibernation.

Good luck with them and happy hog watching.
