  1. Thanks I'll try them together again, it's probably me panicking and splitting them up sooner. I've two sleeping areas for them, so they can escape each other.
  2. One of my Jill's had kits 14 wekks ago kept two, rest re-homed at 9 weeks. Tried returning her to the big aviary I have with the rest of the ferrets but she just keeps attacking one of my other Jill's? Fine with the older Jill and my hob and she's coming off worse as well! These two used to be always playing before?? So now she's back in the small hutch with the older Jill just for company. My question is has anybody had this and did the Jill eventually calm down, is it hormones and why just attack just one of the Jill's
  3. I'll be buzzing if they stay Silvers, just wasn't sure at how old they are when they get their adult colours
  4. Proper late to be having Kits, but this is the Jill that lost her last litter, she came back in season so thought I'd try again. Kits are four weeks today. My question is what colour do you think the ones that are lighter grey might turn out to be ? Only bred two other litters before and they were Albino to a Sandy, so all started white then went darker. The Hob used is a lighter brown than my Jill. Also, my other two Jills and one castrated hob have been moved into another hutch and I left her in the big avairy, what age of the kits do you think I can bring them back in?
  5. Depending where you live, Friendly Vets, Sowerby Bridge charged me £22 for two Jill's and I just got my males castrated, makes life a whole lot easier. Don't have to be splitting the males up in summer and they don't stink either.
  6. Chuff me they have disappeared, thought they made the Terrier Boxes as well? I won't be chucking my locator under the hedge to my mate this season
  7. Deben are still fixing Mk3 Boxes or they was, fixed mine in Feb this year
  8. Deben still sell them, I got one start of this year for my MK3, think it was £4
  9. Mine has to be Frank but I haven't had many ferrets to compare, I've only got seven seasons of ferreting behind me, my mate let me go out with him on his permission to see if I liked it before I commited to buying all my own ferreting equipment, well from the first time I went out, I loved it!!! it just felt like something I was meant to be doing, and loved catching my own tea. So he gave me two Jill ferrets to start me off, I bred Frank from Fidget one of the jills the next year. Frank grew into a massive hob but was the most gentle ferret, never bit me once or anybody else, my mate took
  10. Would you take the hobs out then and just leave the Jill's together, does it matter that only the one Jill would be having the kits? Have the Jill jab for the rest and also my hob is castrated?
  11. I'd separated my Jill about two weeks before she was due to give birth, but she hated it on her own, was proper stressed about it, just paced up and down. She had her kits on her due day the Monday, left her to it didn't look at them, could just hear them but Wedsnesday came and I couldn't hear a thing, so checked and three were dead and one barely alive, turns out my Jill had no milk to feed them, proper gutted about it, she's such a fantastic ferret, never bit me from being a kit, fantastic little worker, really small, often rabbits bolt with her attached to them. That was her first lit
  12. Chuffin hell Do you think we could use parcel force??
  13. Anybody bred any Albino Kits? Looking for a Hob, will be worked and well looked after, my ferrets live in a massive aviary. I live in West Yorkshire
  14. Number is working from website and new longnet ordered
  15. Does anybody know if he's still making them? tried the number, love the fast set Longnet and it's a lot lighter than some others Cheers
