I have at least two hogs in the garden using nests I built from bricks and hay.
One seems to be very large, a good 8-9″ in length. The other much smaller.
They wintered and came out late February.
They also share a brick feeding station which keeps out the cats.
From the amount of stools in the feeding station there is obviously more than one hog using it.
I have noticed the sometimes runny green stools but for the first time this morning one of the stools is quite large and for the most part white.
I give them the usual supplement of cat food and kibbles to go with worms I sometimes find in the garden and have seen no other problem until now.
Is the white stool a sign of illness or just diet?
Thoughts please.
