  1. I'll be buzzing if they stay Silvers, just wasn't sure at how old they are when they get their adult colours
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. Deben are still fixing Mk3 Boxes or they was, fixed mine in Feb this year
  6. Deben still sell them, I got one start of this year for my MK3, think it was £4
  7. 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
  8. 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?
  9. 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
  10. Chuffin hell Do you think we could use parcel force??
  11. 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
  12. Number is working from website and new longnet ordered
  13. 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
  14. I didn't mean it and it was a very shit thing for me to say! I was just hurt and angry by some of the replys that made me feel even worse than I already did! That day when I had to come home and leave my ferret out not knowing her fate was horrendous, If I could have dug 16ft I would have been doing it, not asking for advice on here, It was a new place to ferret and I want be repeating it.
  15. She's covered in ticks and got fleas! Never had fleas on a ferret before, but not thin to say she's been out for a week, but I had left ferret biscuits down for her. Still smiling. Thank you to all that gave me advice leaving my box, don't give up etc and to all the haters thinking I'm a heartless bitch I hope this happens to all oh no thats because you've all dug down 16ft trenches so you've all got experience and will be fine!
