    Skinny nursing jill

    exactly how can a carnivore have too much meat? surely meat/whole prey is better for them than any kibble ? This time of year I limit meat due to the flies but winter they get whole carcasses

    Skinny nursing jill

    My Jill dropped 11 kits 5-6 days ago now down to 8 but she is skinny aswell given the kits everything she’s got i’ve been given her two day old chicks (ideal this time of year due to the flies) each day, aswell as biscuits and then small portion meat aswell each day change it between mince beef/pigeon/chicken wings
  3. Sadly yesterday my Gill died and I’m desperate for two Gill kits to keep my other Gill company. Any information would be great!

    Heat stroke

    Vet wasn’t too sure on what it could have been without doing tests as there are a couple of reasons as to why. treated with antibiotics Incase it was a bacterial infection but unfortunately died that night

    Heat stroke

    Think my Gill has heat stroke fed them last night and seems fine. Went to clean them out this morning found my Gill very lethargic no use of her back legs. Any suggestions to help her out? Currently got her in an open shoe box in the house where’s it’s nice and cool with fresh water and ice pack underneath the box and the bedding to help slowly bring down.

    Working age

    I worked my old gills until they were about 8-9 just a few little warrens each. They are great for teaching younger ones to hunt and work a Warren so I often used them first with a younger one behind to learn from.

    Dogs in transit

    Hello, I have an open back Toyota Hilux with a roll and lock system and I want a weather proof dog box to go in the back so fit my Labrador bitch that will be comfy and warm enough for her, is there such a thing?. Any suggestions would be great. My other option I am considering is taking out my back seats and putting a well build crate in the back. Will I need to buy a bespoke one to fit? Thanks In advance Compo21

    Sleeping quarters

    Cheers would take the pipe out but it’s needed for them to get up the levels of the hutch might try taking it out for a few days so they move into the box and try again if that fails I’ll try the cardboard box

    Sleeping quarters

    For some reason my ferrets keep taking all their bedding out of the sleep box taking it all into the pipes through the hutch and sleeping in the pipe. Any ways to stop this happening? Just makes it hard to clean out a 2m pipe when they’ve decided to nest in the middle of it and take the dead pigeons in with them thanks

    Cheers going to add some pipes aswell

    Decided to make a hutch for my ferrets this time something with plenty of room 6ft tall 8ft long and a 2ft deep. Needs painting, a slope coming off the roof for the rain and storage doors putting on but it’s getting there. The bottom level is for storage but can easily be changed to another level if I get any more ferrets. Just picked up two gill kits today getting excited for the season now. Compo21

    FAC Air rifle

    thank you for the info I’ll look into just trying to decide to go down the FAC air rifle route or a 22 rifle, both have pros and cons I suppose I’ve been shooting shotguns over 10 years just looking for something different to get in to

    FAC Air rifle

    Just a quick question I know with rifles it’ll be hard for me to get an open ticket on all my permissions to use, however what’s the rules with an FAC air rifle am I more likely to get an open ticket to take anywhere? Or do the same rules apply thanks compo

    Clay shooting

    I’ve never really done much clay shooting but I’m thinking of going to Riseley shooting ground at some point soon as it’s not too far from me just wondering can I just turn up and go shooting? Or will I need to book a slot?
