We have a hogilo which has been totally ignored by all hedgehogs! It is tucked against a fence, under some bushes, facing the ‘right’ way so there are no draughts, supply of hay inside and outside together with leaves etc etc – and the little b**ggers take no notice! Once or twice we have seen one peer in and then reverse out but it just doesn’t meet their expectations! In the first days one must have gone in because the hay was made into a very rough circle – so someone had a nap – but nothing since! It’s quite close to the feeding station and where they ‘snuffle’ under the choysia so they can’t have missed it! I’m thinking of putting a ‘hedgehog maternity unit’ sign outside but have heard that hedgies can’t read? They are still taking food though, cat food and hedgehog biscuits last night, so I am ever hopeful! Oh, and I think I now have one female – or maybe another boy who is very shy about his ‘bits’.
