hi similar question really i got a hog tonight which weighs 350g. It seems healthy enough and eating but im thinking it may struggle to get upto weight in time especially if we get a cold spell.I am Just looking for someone to agree with me really (or advise otherwise) as im thinking i should fatten him up in an old guinea pig cage in my spare bedroom and then look to overwinter him if needed or ideally i can release him into one of my hedgehog houses in my garden assuming the weather is mild enough and he has got upto a decent weight in time. I could then keep offering food and water in my feeding station once released.
Alternatively i could take him to my local animal rescue but hopefully i could do it all myself.
I have looked after and fattened up a couple of hogs in the past and also taken a couple of injured hogs to my local rescue in the past but they were bigger and it was later in the year so this is a little different to what i have dealt with in the past.
Any advise would be welcomed thanks
