  1. Braking a ferret to a terrier

    They might just be playing. I think the ferrets sense they can have more fun with my bulldog too. I often see them chewing on my wee bitches face and she takes it all in fun. The bulldog is all fun and carry on and they literally do be hanging off her face. My beddy whippet on the other hand would kill them if they even looked in her direction, or go near her kennel, or go near her food or water bowl. She works with them fine but has to be watched in the garden with them. She doesnt like any other animals touching her stuff.
  2. Giving kits a chance!

    The back end going on a ferret is never a good sign. Your lucky it did pull through because the majority of the time it can be a sign of something serious and they dont make it. They can take a variety of illnesses, conditions and flu's and when its serious the symptoms are nearly the same for them all. Back end going, rapid weight loss lethargy, where they struggle to walk. So it can be hard to tell what is actually wrong with a ferret when it literally deteriates in front of your eyes. Waste of money taking them to vets near me too. They dont give a shyte about ferrets. Its never easy to cull a animal that you have brought up from a kit, that you have spent time training and bonded to. I always give them a chance too but when their ribs start showing and they can barely get up or their walking in circles its time for me cull. Hope your ferret makes a full recovery.
  3. What are you feeding yours?

    They wont eat the shell. Break it into their bowls. Some of mine eat raw eggs and some dont but they wouldnt break them open by themselves.
  4. What are you feeding yours?

    Dog mince would be fine for them. I gave a lad a hob ferret kit this year and he feeds it on diced beef and lots of red meat. Its solid muscle and looks as if its been doing weights. The hobs nearly as broad as it is long. Just freeze it solid for a while before feeding it raw.
  5. What are you feeding yours?

    Thats normal as they will eat the lot with some fur and a bit of feather. I usually pull the guts out them first, just because it turns my stomach at the thought of them eating the bowels. Yuk. Doesnt bother them.
  6. Somebody dosen't like cats!

    Could be badgers, their known for taking the head off lambs and leaving the body.
  7. What are you feeding yours?

    At the moment their getting mackrel, pollock, chicken carcasses, eggs sometimes and the very odd bit off rabbit. Iv two that would rather eat dog nuts out the dogs bowl than anything else.
  8. Braking a ferret to a terrier

    I had two older ferrets that would bite dogs. They stopped it when my bitch started biting them back. They spend plenty time together but ignore each other.
  9. Staffy Bull

    Wee picture of my 11 month old bitch Sadie. Amsaff x staffy. Good wee dog, very obedient and eager to please. Comes everywhere with me even lamping and helps out when ferreting. I picked a bigger stronger bitch and my wee girl grabbed the smallest pup which was the runt of the litter. Stuck with her now.
  10. Long net set up help

    You will get away with using hazel rods for a bit, but they can snap when a rabbit hits the net sometimes, so have plenty spare. If your permissions on hard ground also you more than likely wont be getting natural poles into the ground either. Your probably better off buying decent poles and turning them into a quick set system.
  11. Ferreting Dog

    Beddy whippets drop as much hair as any other dog, if not more. They have an under coat and top coat so they shed double, so besides the normal long hair that falls out of them you'll also be sweeping up lint when they start shedding. Great wee dogs, will go into cover and escape most knocks from barbed wire fences without getting ripped and will catch bolters. Will also put in a full nights lamping. Downside to some of them is they can be too keen which makes them stubborn and prone to hunting up. They pick up scent and you no longer exist to them. I wouldnt do without her now but mine was a absolute fukcer to train.
  12. Hob Season

    My hob has been in with the jills this past month. Put your hob in with one of the jills to see if he scruffs it. If he doesnt scruff it hes out of season. He might start licking her ears, thats normal when they first meet or havent seen each other for a while.
  13. Squirrels

    Squirrel actually does taste nice. Id freeze them solid for a couple of days before id feed them raw to the ferrets.
  14. Retrieving Kits

    Never experienced anything like it but all my ferrets bar two leave the kids pet rabbits alone. Sounds like a handy trait to have taking the young ones out the hole rather than sit and kill the lot. Especially when rabbits can be scarce in areas, it gives you the option to kill or let them live to grow for another day.
  15. Ratting With Ferrets

    Ferrets should be well up for the job. Can you not leave the door shut and bring the dog in while the ferrets are rooting them out ?. Lock them in and get them all.
