yeh funny thing ferret prices,,, would it be better for ferrets if we all had to pay good money for them???,,, personly i tend to give them away,,, but i dont see a problem with folk paying £20............. i have paid a tenner for one befor..... but its a good while since i bought any...

£50 does seem alot,,,, but i have seen two supposedly half cross eu x ferrets,,, go through the auction at melton for £70 each,,, also seen sivers and the like get £30-40

A ferret is part of a working team with out them ur not bolting any bunnys? there is a lot of s*** ferrets out there that dont work, and i need mine to come straight back out if nothing in the warren and straight back to hand which all mine do, and they wount leave the hole till all bunnys are clear... ive never brought a ferret before this one, and ive had ferrets all my life..

Sounds like a cracker looking forward too the pics. At the end of the day you buy what you want as long as your happy not sure why people feel the need to be negative all the time

Were they bred from his 2nd generation Polecat Jill??

He was charging £20 a head for an 8 week old ferret.

£50 for a 3rd Generation Polecat... Mother was a 2nd Gen Polecat... but what was father!?

All i know mate is what he told me and that was that the mother and father was pure polecats!!! All the other ferrets he was selling were just standed ferrets selling them at £20-£30.... My hob was hand reared at 4weeks old, so were all the other kits in its litter..

I like how you say "Bought of James McKay himself " like that makes it anything special guys like that can buy all local breed ferrets cheap and punt them for silly money to guilable people

Look i was putting a thread up off my new polecat and stating where i got him from, there was nothing men't by me naming who i brought him off, that was his name... he told me all about the mother and father and seemed ok, i personally dont know the guy, but im happy with what i brought....

Holy crap. 50 bucks for a dark ferret cause Mackay said it was a Polecat., Brilliant.

It`s a ferret mate, same as all the 5 quid ferrets that are all over the place

And you are????? dont tell me a ferret expert!! if i wanted to spend 100 i will, money is'nt everything, you carnt take it with you when you kick the bucket!!! Mckay seemed ok like ive said i dont know the guy but was chatting to him about the mother and father, if he was bull sh****g then there is f*** all i can do about it, i liked the look of the hob i brought so i was happy, end of story!!!!! :victory:

And you are????? 50 quid better off,,,cheeky cnut !! lol http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub... http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub... how to make friends in only 26 easy posts !! hhahahahah


dont tell me a ferret expert!! only kept them for 23 years bud, so no, not an expert yet,

if i wanted to spend 100 i will, money is'nt everything, you carnt take it with you when you kick the bucket!!! Mckay seemed ok like ive said i dont know the guy but was chatting to him about the mother and father, if he was bull sh****g then there is f*** all i can do about it, i liked the look of the hob i brought so i was happy, end of story!!!!! http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub...


I`m glad you`r happy with him, an yes it`s up to you how much you spend on him, (I once spent 110 treating a ferret I rescued then gave him away,) so yes, money means fuckall. I just hate seeing people convinced about this polecat malarky. I`ve seen plenty dark ferrets about getting called EU this and that, but until I see some DNA testing showing they are a different species, they are all just ferrets..
I`ve met Mackay, he was OK, but remember , this is his income, so money rules the roost.
