    mxy up and down the country

    I can't understand the need to cull every rabbit. Release in areas where they are sparse . But I advise doing it around towns and houses . Places the shooters can't whack them . Let there numbers get up . And introduce rabbits from totally different areas . It strengthens the gene pool

    I reintroduced them back to a few areas . Only moving bunnies late January to help keep disease down . Few plac3s doing real well last couple of years. Got whacked with rhvd2 last week . Makes you wonder if it's worth it

    Stud dog

    I couldn't agree more pal . What I'm saying is . A proven stud is exactly that . And the owner , if he's clever .won't be displaying his charge to all and sundry. It's a sad fact of today's society ( dog thieves) as two crows said there's a few out there covering any bitch that comes , and they have been real good dogs . But look past their ability (breeding) . Where's the good siblings , parents or grandparents? . Then ask where are the good pups out this dog . You will at least hear about them as people can't keep their gob shut. There are lads out there that are brutally honest. If you consult the honest men they will give you an opinion . If the owner of potential dam listens , he might find he's had blinkers on . As you say . It's a lottery , but if number 9 keeps coming up on a Saturday, are you going to have it as one of your numbers in next lottery. Of course you will . All we can do is lessen our odds .

    Imo . Certain lines throw certain traits . Some drill the life out old puss . Some boxy . In today's environment, a friend can arrange a day out , ask for permission to video the stud and relay it back . Then delete . You have an idea what your getting even before you see a few clips . Confirm it and get it done if your happy

    It's everyone's right to use whatever stud they like mate . But what are they creating . Sometimes the bitches lineage is so strong she can be very dominant in the pups . Far more knowledgeable lads than me have made a pigs ear of it with both stud and dam looking great on paper . But if a stud dog is producing to a variety of bitches . Mg money is on him

    Show me a guarantee regarding breeding ????? All you can do is give yourself the best odds . Hence a proven stud . Go to a great runner that has poor lineage. Most likely can't reproduce himself . It's hard enough breeding a litter , at least give yourself better bet .

    In fairness. The lines on both parents are so strong . It's a strong possibility they will throw the way they should . Don't believe any non ped whippet in there like was mentioned by the poster tho.its all a lottery . Seen some real good dogs run . But they never throw a pup . Best from tried and tested line Imho

    Ferrets have been poisoned.

    A lot of chicken mince is carcasses and wings. The bone in the mince blocks the ferrets intestines.

    Ferrets have been poisoned.

    Sounds like secondary poisoning or gastroenteritis pal . You don't feed then minced chicken by any chance?

    That is a proper made little dog. Built for speed . But bet it can hang on a bit . Very nice

    Totally agree. The litter I bred years back . I had 3 in mind . I sent messages to two of the owners . One owner asked a dozen questions about my bitch . The other owner sent back a simple message..." £1000" . Both extremely well bred . Great blood behind them . But I liked the sharp breeding behind dancers line and the fact the owner wanted to protect the studs reputation. I know he has turned numerous bitches away since . Says a lot . But most don't care and the £££s rule

    Good studs are hard to come bye . You need to know if he's already a producer . How strong his lineage goes back out of proven dogs. The traits he throws , and if they suit your bitches style . Then most importantly ask yourself is the bitch truly worthy of breeding, would all pups be placed in good homes . Would you be better getting a well bred pup out of more tested stock etc . If the decision is still to breed yourself. Then find the best suited stud pays your money. Travel to Timbuktu if needed and cross your fingers . You need a helluva lot of luck. If they don't click there's absolutely nothing you can do about it .atb drover
