Hi nifad

Wild animals don’t tend to overeat unless in captivity, but there is often an exception to every rule! But especially at this time of year when the hogs are trying to put on the two types of fat they need for hibernation, I would also be inclined to put out more food. That is unless you might have a cat visiting, because they would likely just eat it all! But hopefully, if you’re filming you would have noticed.

If you have several hogs visiting, I would leave several bowls/dishes a bit apart if possible. i.e., maybe more than one feedbox. Hogs often poo in the hog boxes, even if there is food available, so I wouldn’t read too much in to it. Some people see it as a thankyou! Always better if they don’t stand in it too much, though!

Good luck with the hogs. I hope they have a successful hibernation time.
