New hog house and feeding station in the wrong place?

    Hi everyone,

    I put the newly built hog house and seperate feeding station in the garden on Friday.

    I haven’t checked the house, but the food (Bramley hog wet food), has been untouched for the 3 nights and I wondered if I have put it in the wrong place?

    I have only lived here a short while and I have seen hog poo in the front garden, but not the back (open between the two) but I have put the house and feeding station at the back, as there a lot of cats in the close who I know come into the garden. I have photos of where they are, but don’t think I can upload them?

    Any advice would be gratefully received thank you.

    Hi Barders

    Don’t worry too much if the hogs haven’t taken to the hog house and feeding station yet. It sometimes takes them a bit of time to get used to new features. You might want to try putting a little bit of food outside to give them the idea. Although, having said that, some hogs are wary of going in to boxes at all, so it’s possible you have one of those.

    But I would avoid being tempted to move the hog houses, especially for the moment. With nesting houses, it can take them a year or two before they use them, even if some people are lucky and they are occupied much sooner. So just stick with it and hopefully the hogs will show some interest soon.

    Good luck
