Finally got around to buying a chicken coop for the ferrets (thanks to my bet on Belgium earlier in the world cup) . I've been wanting one for over a year but things kept getting in the way of buying one . I've got 2 Jill's and a vas hob . I've got 2 hutches here already
This one was given to me by a friend
And I built this one myself when I first got ferrets . It's a good hutch , solid and secure but heavy as sin and it's in one of my outside brick sheds
Ive always fancied a big outside hutch for the ferrets so they can have more space and experience the elements properly . In the shed the outside door is mesh so they get some wind/sun etc but it's not the same as being outside all the time.
I bought this coop from Amazon , cost £200 delivered . Given it two coats of paint , still needs touching up in parts I've missed . Excuse the rotation
I've decided to lift it up off the floor . Theirs a base and then I've got a removable ply on top that's got batterns around to hold coop in place . Idea is that once a week I can take coop off and take base off and clean it properly
I've read the little compartment under the nest box can become the toilet and it's hard to get in there to clean so Im going to ply that area off and have a hole in the ply and fill that area with kids play balls .
The rest of the hutch inside is undecided . Any idea of things to stick in there etc . I've got loads of pipe to find a home for
