we also have a variety of hog homes and hogilos. a female we released a month or so ago could be seen routinely investigating each and every one on a regular basis and spending a few nights in one then moving to another. she often bumped into other interested parties and occupants, but they never seemed particularly bothered by each other and seemed satisfied with swapping homes regularly. she often disappears for a week or so at a time too – and I wonder whether the warmer weather we are having prompts them to prefer sleeping outside rather than in any house anyway? We are also finding that the food isnt being taken as regularly or in the same quantities – which I’m concluding as a good thing, as they must be finding more of their own or have reached a more comfortable weight which means they dont need it as much.
