  5. Hey Garbs Why dont you start making your own ,I started only about two or three years ago only after about 40 years of rabbiting never payed much attention as how they were made pretty easy really , And you can make a couple of big uns for when you get two holes together Thats if you have time that is cheers Bernie
  6. Thats good to hear it wouldnt be nice for the stinkys I had a bad run with it about 15 years ago reckon one of my dogs carried it back from fox shooting he used to catch it all the time a labrador he was , Yet my kelpie never had it once dont know why they were always together , So if you have dogs also check them usually under there stomach were there is not much hair looks like elephant skin but if you use them flea drops that gets rid ,, Mrs found a little spray bottle of tea tree oil in safeway the other day its a bit easier to use Bernie
  7. Nice ferret Doug , I am keepin a polecat jill out of my lot this year , This one caught my attention as it was more interested in my company when i fed them every mornin a bit different hey Almost forgot what this post was about , I havent time to argue about stuff to many bun buns to catch B
  8. Footrot is usually connected to sarcoptic mange main culprit is the humble fox I use tea tree oil on the feet every second day, buy a little bottle neet and paint with small artists brush that will sort there feet out may take a few weeks Then wash with that stuff doug mentioned malawash malaban that will kill live mites but the eggs will hatch again in a few weeks so have to do again,, google life cycle I also spray all the bedding nest box ect with diluted either tea tree oil or that malaban stuff If you have other ferrets i would wash them also in malawash and spray bedding I am treating one as we speak he was a rescue ferret and was very sick with mange and starvation , however he has improved out of sight mange nearly gone and the most plasid animal i have known with people and also a very good worker so it was worth the rescue , He is a big pink eyed white hob called Pedro Bernie
