  4. old basil..

    Thank god these old practices are left where they need to be in the past!! The old fella seemed like quite a character though there were a lot of old boys like this around when I started ferreting in the early 70s and they were interesting to listen to like the famous jack Hargreaves loved the programme out of town

  7. What are you feeding yours?

    As said above rabbit squirrel and feather best if possible. We do give ours more kibble is the hight of the summer due to the flies. If we have a Jill with Kitts we give them fur and feather and remove the carcass first thing in the morning. Not that there is Not a lot left with 8 hungry Kitts THEY ARE PURE EATING MACHINES

    I agree it is mind bending when sites are 1st changed i.e. Banks forums etc but with time you do get used to em slowly. The trouble is I'm so slow by the time I've sussed it out it's time to update the site again. Technology moves faster than I ever can

  11. Ferret housing during winter

    It's the heat that's a killer to ferrets not the cold blueboybilly As said plenty of straw in the cage or court facing out of the wind this combined with there winter coat they will be fine and can cope with quite extreme cold. In the summer the opposite change betting to wood shavings keep cage in shade if poss if not face the back of the cage to the sun

    That's the way to do it mate think everyone can benefit from adding a bit of new blood to their line of ferrets now and again. Try and strive to get the best workers!!

    That's good news we get a lot of ferret Kitts over in the uk that end up in rescue centres etc every year cos there are a minority of ferret keepers that breed cos they think they are worth money or think you have to breed the Jill's. Don't think to use Jill jab or vasectomised hob etc. My motto is if you don't need any Kitts or don't know how your going to re home them then don't breed your Jill that year. Use one of the other methods to take the Jill out of season. This prevents loads of unwanted Kitts that end up in rescue centres or even worse not looked after properly. SORRY about the belly ache but I feel very passionate about this subject. GOOD luck with the Kitts sirblessed hope you get some good workers from them
