It may well have originally designed as a feeding station as I have seen them with two entrances, but this one in divided into two houses which are both too small. Will hogs choose a house with two entrances, I have read elsewhere that they only like one, but I would have thought it best with a second door i case of emergency.

I will make sure I don’t move the leaves from the garden and May collect extra from elsewhere fir bedding, plus I may buy some bags of straw.. I will leave water out every night while they hibernate and possibly food but don’t want to waste it if they don’t come out to eat.
