I was bought a Hedgehog House as a present for Christmas - I place the hogs food (mealworms, crushed peanuts and chicken kibble) on a plate under it every night. By morning, all the foods gone, and the Hogs leave me several little presents on my patio and in the Hog House. It is starting to get quite messy, especially with all the rain. If its dry, the mess is very easy to brush into borders, so I don't mind so much. Does anybody know how often they poop. I thought I only had two, maybe three hogs visiting on a nightly basis, but with all the poop, I am wondering if there are more. No doubt the regularity of the food will add to the volume.
And whilst I am here.....
I was watching a pair of hogs on my patio last night. One of them was sitting very still and was doing a lot of snuffling. The other one kept on trying to walk around the back of the one sitting still, but as soon as it did that, the snuffling increased to the point it seemed quite upset and then it turned to move its hind quarter away. Was I watching some kind of Hog courtship going on?
