A trio of hoglets

Here are three of our little singleton orphan hoglets, Spikes (at the food bowl) and her companions, Elda and Shelby.

These three have been put together for company, rather than be kept on their own, as we find that hoglets seem to thrive better with company of a similar age/size. It also gives them a bit of competition for food, which seems to bring them on much better.

They will all be released back to where they came from once they reach 400 – 450g.
