Hog asleep at night

    Wee question if anyone can help? I have two hog houses in the back garden and a separate feeding station. Noticed this morning I have a resident and seen two hogs in the garden tonight. When I went back to check one has taken itself off into the house and seems to be sleeping. Is this normal? Or should I be worried?

    Hi DarkPassenger78

    Hogs quite often have naps between snacks, so as long as it isn’t staying in there all night, and is actually venturing out to feed, hopefully it’s o.k. In general it’s best not to look into boxes too much, in case there is a female producing young ones – although not sure that’s what you meant.

    Good luck and happy hog watching.


    Thanks for getting back to me ๐Ÿ™‚ The house it was in has a huge tunnel made by the hogs in the straw and if you look in the door you can see if ones in there so I never need to disturb them and never would. It was gone by morning but I continue to have regular visits each night I even had a young hog last night was super cute and very curious. Polished off the cat meat I gave it ๐Ÿ˜€
