They work :-) I enjoyed the little view into your hhogs' garden and home. Lovely! Will you leave the feeding box out all winter? Just in case? Really, that was dandy and I thank you, mp

Yes I will leave the feeding station out all winter,just in case.
Was cold last night but hoggies were still out and about.Still have not actually seen them for a few days but they do leave 'presents' around so I know that have visited!
It's not always easy to hug a hedgehog.
But that doesn't mean you shouldn't.
Still cold out but saw a little hoggy last night! :)

Pleased your Hedgehogs are doing well, and good to know they are getting plenty of good food, and the new shelter looks great too :)
I love what you are doing for the Hedgehogs madpenguine :)
Have you made the feeding stations out of the plastic storage containers? How do you do that.
Thanks for sharing your story and pictures :)

Hopefully MP will see your post and reply herself.
Yes you can make a hog feeding station out of a plastic storage box by just cutting a 4" square hole in one end towards the bottom of the box,put the food at the far end of the box, you can put a brick or something heavy on the lid to stop it moving.

As Alan has said you can make a feeding station out of a plastic storage box.Make sure that the hole has no sharp edges (I use duct tape).
You can just make a shelter out of bricks and slabs,the feeding station is really to stop cats getting the food before the hogs!
Sometimes I just scatter peanuts and mealworms on the lawn so they can forage for themselves.
I am still getting regular visits and have about 4/5 at the moment.
Brilliant They need all the help they can get
