    Hi everyone

    But if advice please I have 2 hedgehog houses and they were both used last year one of them can be used to have hoglets, so after hibination I cleaned them both and put fresh bedding in the one that can be used for hoglets.

    Have looked each and nothing in there. They do go to have a look however today I noticed that the bedding has been moved and on closer inspection I believe there is a hedgehog in there ( I know may /June is breeding season -do you think it could be this or just a hedgehog that is using the house in the day to sleep
    Any advice would be grateful

    Hi Chezzy

    It’s very difficult to say, but hogs aren’t known for necessarily doing what we want them to do. i.e. they are just as likely to use a completely different place to the one we might have thought was ideal.

    It may or may not be a female in there. But I would leave the hog in peace and not keep looking in case it is. Whether a female gives birth in your garden or not, you still might have hoglets visiting. But fingers crossed it is a female about to give birth in your hog box.


    Thank you Nic I am leaving it alone just in case it is a female ready to give birth
