Hi Suzynic,

I’m curious to hear how your ‘shy’ female is doing? are you considering she might now be ready for release?
we always try and put hogs out initially in a prepared hoghouse which they can chose to use or use temporarily until they find their feet. they also swap hoghouses quite often and a few weeks ago we gave a hog house to a neighbour along with some hog support notes and a feeding station (as our garden is quite full now and they tend not to stick around if too many in close residence – the females especially like a peaceful spot away from pestering males we concluded). anyway – he had a peek in the house earlier this week as he’d given up hope that they may be around and was going to give us the house back – but he had a sleeping hog in there – so he is now delighted and completely enthralled in the hog cause as well.
