Hi Sammy9

Great news about the hog! It’s probably a bit early to tell whether it’s male or female. Both will sometimes borrow bedding from another hog house. In general, males tend to come out of hibernation earlier than females, but there are always variations. Hopefully time will tell. It would be lovely if it is a female and has hoglets in your garden! Fingers crossed! Let us know how things go.

Happy hog watching!
