Yes 2 spayed jills, 2 and 3 years old. They won't eat the tinned dog food so I'm feeding them on dry ferret food







I'll get some better pics tomorrow or monday mate

Lovely Polecat and Ferret you have got yourself there...I dont know if you have ever come across 'Whippet' ferret's but the ferret you have there looks very similar to one

We call them greyhound ferrets up here, just had my terrier pup to get microchipped as I had his tail docked with the others in the litter so I'll start breaking him to them tomorrow

You may have a terrier pup with a hurting nose then later!!! Seriously though i envy you and the laughs your gonna get,i remember last year i went to see a mate of mine for a bit of shooting he had 3 ferrets out on the grass at his place with his two dogs and the sport they were having with each other was great..in fact we both looked a bit like this.....

A few new pics as been busy with pigeons and rats    at work







bigphil

So cute!
I miss having ferrets but my permissions have gone.
Once I retire though I will be having couple of poleys for sure.
rustyboy

Got to be done bigphil!! and Did you sort the rat problem out bearinator?? I'm off on a Photographic commission today but when i get back i might try and get a few more of the little'un and her adopted mother who herself was a kit from last year and the last week has been hilarious watching them playing about together,the kit has settled right in now and while i want to try and keep a little bit in her she has learnt not to bite the hand that feeds  her!!...have a good day folks

my lad fancies a ferret [however ive stipulated not until he's 10, currently 7 so we are a while away yet but im a stickler for early very early preparation      , and more responsible otherwise i'll end up doing all the cleaning out etc] was wondering if a couple of spayed jills would be the best option, as my original thought was a couple of jills with a hoblet. thoughts and advice appreciated, thirty years plus since i had a ferret.  
rustyboy

Managed to get a couple more in the end earlier

A couple of spayed jills would be ideal

Yes Rusty we got the site sorted but my mate covers the whole of Northumberland and over Carlisle so we have plenty of rats to do and get the odd rabbit clearance job as well

Interesting...i dont do any ratting with the ferts all my permissions are strictly rabbiting bearinator and to be quite honest i always been a bit weary of ratting with them...although i have over the past ten years lost 2 ferrets due to kicks from Bucks,have you ever lost any to rats before bearinator??
bearinator

Just had them get a few nasty bites but don't use ferrets when the rats have young as chances are a suckling doe would maul the ferret, I think we are going ferreting tomorrow on a couple of local farms
