Three more hoglets

Three more hoglets have joined us this lunch time, brought in from Sturminster Marshall. They were in a stable, wandering around in the daytime, and there has been no sign of mum for a while, so the safest thing for them was to bring them in for us to care for them.

They were on the cold side, and slightly dehydrated, but otherwise seem fine. Two females weighing 98g & 110g and the third was too shy to let me check to see what sex it is, this one weighs 108g.

As you can see in the photos, one is already trying the buffet in the incubator, the other two will hopefully join it when they have warmed up a bit.

Due to their weight being ~100g, I am trying them on liquidised solids with a bit of milk replacement formula to see how they go.
