Hi MrsHogoftheHedge

Sounds like you have pretty definitive proof of 2 hogs then! It is interesting how you can sometimes detect quite different characters in the hogs. Just a tip for ‘hubby’, though, re. hog nests, it is best to leave them until April:
Even if you don’t think one is empty, there may be times when they still use them. Like the one here. Having seen the little chap here spending hours taking material into his box, I know it takes a huge amount of work for them to build one. The males usually start coming out of hibernation any time now, but the females often not until a month’s time or more.

Glad to hear the hogs there seem well. I wouldn’t worry too much about feeding stations, they will probably sort it out, otherwise you could end up with a whole row of them! I usually feed the hogs here in the open during the summer – makes it easier to watch them.

Interesting that you have house, or garden, trained hogs! The one here seems to have been very clean and tidy and I have seldom seen any poos from him at all – until recently. Last night there were two in the feeding box. Don’t want him starting to get into those sort of habits!
