billy and vanperry, you guys have me cracking up!!!! i will say though, that i agree with your post. i learned awhile back that it is a waste of time to read a certain person's post. imo, just the same self righteous condescending bs over and over, while most of the time trying to stir up an argument. anyway...

to the original feeding question... in my experience, yes, they are individuals. as troy once put, you have to find their "tweek" lol if your hog's tweek is to feed in a hide, then congrats on finding it. i also have a female that only eats in her hide, while her sibling literally comes out of the cage lunging at food off the tongs! i keep them in the exact same environments. neither hisses, puffs up, or acts stressed. actually, both crawl out onto my hands and seem to enjoy being held. they just each have their own personalities, if you will.

i only have 12 hogs at the moment, but each one is a little different. i have one female that used to lunge at the prey off tongs, but now only eats if left alone over night. i could name numerous differences. i just try to find what works best for that particular animal, and cater to it's needs.
