Hi GlowyEyes11

I know what you mean about not wanting to interfere too much. Yes, hoglets can be pretty speedy. But hopefully they will weigh enough and you won’t have to worry about them so much. Sometimes you can sit very quietly near where they feed and just scoop one up. I found that if you put your feet on a footstool they don’t always notice you’re there!

I would take the scales outside if you have an outside light – then there’s minimal disturbance for them. You might need a box with torn up newspaper to put them in (preferably with some food in it) so you know which ones you’ve weighed. If you are well prepared it tends to go more easily.

Good luck. Hope all goes well.
