:thanks for being helpful Ill start getting them ready and hopefully will have apair of pigs in the spring by the way are you on the west coast, Im on the border of az and nm-jorge
: If their weight is good give them a couple of weeks to clear the gut of all food and put them down for the rest of the winter. Mitchelli can go a long time without food. I have a female I caught in 1992 that ate a whiptail and a collared lizard right after capture. She then refused everything for the next two years. She lost very little weight. After the second hibernation I brought her out and put her in a dark box with a live fuzzie which she took. She is now a pig and doing great. I also have a male that refused all for the first year. At the end of his second summer with me he took two roadkill rodents. He hadn't lost any weight so I hibernated him. In the spring he was still sporadic but finally in August he started taking domestic mice with gusto. That yours is eating at all is a good sign. Things should improve in time.
