Hi hogmeister, I’m certainly no expert but all I can say is that my hogs start feeding soon after I put food out – 9.30ish . They are then back and forth throughout the night until about 5.30. The food will be all gone well before then but they keep coming back – more in hope than anything else. If I notice that most of the food has gone before I go to bed then I will top it up! I’m not sure how many I have visiting – certainly 3 – 2 big and one much smaller. I only know about the two big ones because I have a lovely video clip of one being ‘rolled’ under the hedgehog gap by the other one!
