Hi char2020

That’s great news! Always lovely to hear about successes! That’s lovely that they are continuing to frequent your garden. If all happens naturally, Mother hog will probably go off to hibernate first – once she doesn’t have to worry about the hoglets any more. But the hoglets may be around a bit longer. They will likely make their own hibernation nests (and should know, naturally, how to build one). Although, it seems hogs who have been in care for a while sometimes behave a bit differently.

Good luck. I hope all goes well with the hog family and hopefully in time many more generations of hogs will result from that rescue!
