Hi YonderDave

I agree, they would not normally congregate is such numbers if we weren’t ‘encouraging’ them by feeding and what you say makes sense. I don’t think the poo-ing is territorial either.

Penny – I have often seen the males crouching down to the ground, but it doesn’t look to me as if it is their chins they are rubbing. It is often when there is a female around. They stretch themselves out and make themselves look longer and then sometimes taller and thinner, except from the side.
The hogs here must be better behaved – I have never seen any hog poos up the wall, but there is a first time for everything!
