Hi TyburyDuck

If you are going to clean the box out, it’s a good idea to use boiling water. Even if you can’t see them, there may be eggs from ticks, etc. hiding in the corners.

In response to your original question, I have read that male hogs can change nests every day and females every week and that different hogs will use the same nest at different times.
