Babies can be born from May onwards and at Herts Hogline we have had babies come in as late as October.
In order for a hoglet to survive the hibernation process it must weight at least 600 grams (one and a quarter pounds in old money). So if you find a hoglet under this weight it must be brought in and fed right through the winter months for release in March of the following year. Although this process can be an easier task then hand rearing a hoglet that comes in very young it is a long-term commitment (up to five months) so if you are unable to take this task on then why not find a carer who will.
When you find an autumn baby you may find it is cold to the touch if this is the case then it will need to be given direct warmth. This can be given either by the use of a hot water bottle wrapped in a towel or when needs must a plastic drinks bottle filled with warm water.
