Meant to add, as had assumed – when you get your resident hog back – hopefully in good health and ready to go. you should re-release at dusk (from 8pm ish currently) and place him at the entrance to whichever is the empty hog house with his transferred bedding in. He should shuffle in – to get away from you as a threat will be his thinking – then you need to leave him to get on with it himself – with some water and food handy where you usually leave it. Fingers crossed he stays. He may try to usurp the new intruder from his old home – but you will have two prepped hog houses for them to occupy anyway – you cant do anymore really.
