  1. No if the livers are not Rossy red I would not be eating them that was the way I was brought up and it has just the way I have been
  2. Hay tool box well done could not disagree with you come it would be a great life style
  3. How bad is is coccidiosis would you feed them to your dogs or ferrets as I have being letting old mate who I go out with taking them and he has bing them to his dogs and ferrets. I also appreciate all the feed back.
  4. Went out again today to a different spot and still found the same thing with the rabbits and as someone had asked I have cut the liver in half and it is right through it.
  5. Being catching a lot of rabbits with their livers looking like this. The rabbits look good and healthy but we don’t eat them , we give them to the dogs. Is it just a fatty buildup is their any body out their that has seen the same or could tell me what it is.
  6. Yep the floods have done a lot of damage. But hold your chin up all will be good BUD as long as you have your health live every day like your last as I do as great man said life goes to fast enjoy what you do .
  7. My little doe has finally had her kits around a week ago their mum is a great little hunter but also a great pet she is proud of them and i have been close to them but still keeping a distance from them at this stage hopefully if i can get 3 to 4 bucks for new stock I will be happy with that . My question is I have in the past put my young ones to work with their mum at around 6 months old is that a bit to early. Second of all I will keep one of her daughters for breading as milly is getting old . With the older ones I will pass them on as pets as that are friendly when handheld but do hunt
  8. I feed mine kangaroo meat venison tin kitten food with minced up chicken frames they get the kitten food once a week mixed in with other meat for the vitamins, the kitten food I buy is all meat not the one with vegetables. I also get a small supply of two weak old roosters which they get whole. The one thing is when you feed them rabbits do you leave the skin on or skin them. I know everyone has their own thoughts on it. I have found that the skinned ones seem to get eaten quicker than if they have their skin on. The other one is when I give them eggs what is better as a raw egg has a lot les
  9. Went up the road today to a property and ferreted under a 40 foot sniping container had a ball got 16 rabbits and it was less then 10;minutes from home . It was a great day in a short time , finally after the floods the ground is starting to dry up how is everyone going this time of year around the globe m
  10. This is just half a Ute load we ran out of room so we stopped ferreting. That was two days and four of us and we run whippets as well . I don’t take many photos as I should . The place we went was only 2 hour drive. But we have plenty of places within 10 minutes from home but the numbers aren’t that large maybe 30 to 40 on a good day e
  11. Don’t panic the rabbits will come and go from it I have the s@m problem where I am in Australia’s we are still making a killing on them
  12. I seem to sell more ferrets to kids for pets. I have the same problem no young ones seem to want to go ferreting, they seem to want to go for dear. It’s a shame to let an old school way of catching rabbits.
  13. We cut the the neck and gut them straight away and then skin them at the end of the day.
  14. We are of to Kerang in two weeks time onto a property of 20 thousand acres and the farmer when we spoke to him he said it’s crawling with rabbits come with us Aussie whip.
  15. Our numbers are looking fantastic down here in Australia but still a lot of little kits running around hopefully we will be in to it in the next couple of weeks and getting good numbers.
  16. Just make sure that the vet has had plenty experience with ferrets.
  17. Sorry for your loss they are not jut a animal but they do become part of your life.
  18. Your new dog has seem to worked out well.
  19. Love the one with the black tail
  20. Holly molly we definitely don’t see these things in Australia we just build our cagers I will post some photos on what I have built over the years my only question is how often do you clean it out, as I have a area in in all my cagers where I have mesh on the floor and a tray under it to catch all their poop ,
  21. Looks great personally I would put one hole on each level and if you ever wanted to close it of just put a concrete paver over it That’s what I have done to my large cage for when I need to seperate my ferrets.
  22. You may have to google it as that was a screen shot.
  23. Found it , it’s on one of the episodes on the same website
  24. Is their any one out on this forum from New Zealander that has actually seen the problem with the rabbits over there I was put onto this by the rabbit whisperer a while ago and is the problem still ongoing. Interesting watching and I think this is the one where a man shoots a rabbit and the lady doing the interview walks in front of the gun afterwards .
  25. I have put up the odd ferret free to good home as they were definitely no good for hunting but make great pets not once l have had anyone complain about distance and have been more then great full for it. I don’t let just anyone take it I do make sure that they have had experience with ferrets in the past.
