Just a pic of some kits i bred last july.

Did they stay nice and small? They look as though they probably did.
I've had ferrets on and off for most of my life but my Mrs would divorce me if I ever had anymore. I was away for the day and one of them nailed her through the thumb when she went to feed them.

The jill and hob i bred from are both small. I kept a few back the jills are a nice size the hobs ended up quite big.They are only 6 months old and im going to start giving them some outings soon.

Nice size kits,  only a week Monday i gave away my ferrets & nets , just been to look at a job where theres lots of rabbits   .

I knew this would happen, haven't used the ferrets in 2 yrs.  Then i get rid ( first time in over 40 yrs without ferrets )   Just my luck

Will you turn the job down or use other methods. atb.

To be honest ferreting the place isn't a good option, ( as they won't pay for the time in operation of ferreting )

Shooting is a NO NO because of what happened a few months ago when someone out rabbit shooting shot a pet Whippet & killed it  

Cage trapping is an option along with  lamping with longdogs.  

this 1 is a bit of a awkward 1  & not an easy fix,

Never know after i put my quote in and recommendations, ferreting may be part of the solution.   If so i will need to get a few ferrets and more nets

Good luck.
