I've just been kicked off a Facebook site for arguing the present day value of a ferret with the site admins etc.
I know this site has a few more educated, older, wiser and genuine hunting members.
My point of view is... why sell a well bred working strain/line of ferret kit to a random stranger for £5-10 pounds?
It's all well and good doing mates favours and gifting them to each other to keep the bloodlines varied within working lines etc.
But £10 ... it's not the value of a packet of cigarettes etc.. how can that do the humble little warriors any justice in this day and age?
It's no wonder all the rescues are full of ferrets and people just dump them at the end of the season rather than feed them all summer etc.
I really do think that £50 is a reasonable minimum price and £100 should not be too expensive for a seriously well-bred worker that has had a lot of time and effort put into the rearing and handling etc. I would go as far as to say a worker should be worth at least £100 in this modern world we are now living in. I'm not trying to start an argument but come on chaps..how much was your phone..? how much petrol/diesel did you put in the vehicle to take you hunting? how much for a locator/collar, nets, FFsake how much for the McDonalds on the way?
it's not about the money... it's about the value of our underground champions.
Come on chaps it's up to us to set the standards for the future.
Well out on Friday with the ferrets what along day ! .Had to check out three new plantations that I cleared back in NOV. Owner thinks rabbits are still getting past the netting .So had a look but no signs of damage but he's the boss so spent best part of the day netting up for nowt .Lost me little lakey cross last year she was good company when out and about if she marked a set it was occupied if not we moved on saved a lot of time . Anyway did a couple of hedges ended up with 4 .plus two rats with the shovel would have been more if pip had been still with me.
Cant get another terrier yet as just taken on a new gundog pup to try and train .But maybe in the future .
I am unfortunately going to have to re home my girls. I have 3 pole jills 2 are related and one it unrelated all workers and from working stock.
I dont have the time to get them out working as offen as i should and in my opinion thats not fair on the little monsters.
They will be going with a full set up il try to list everything but will miss bits.
10"x6"x4" run with large hutch
Another backup hutch
Bits for the cage bowls trays tubes ect
Locator and collar
All to go dont want them to go without as theve got used to lots of space
There all tame nip when hungry bless them but so do i haha
Not asking for any money all i want is for them to go to a good home.
Syiu will need a large van Or trailer to move all this. The cage does come apart into panels. But is all quite bulky.
Iv attached a few pics sorry there abit ropey but phones knackered
