    Great hunters. Just try not to get them to kill the thing in the hole or else get your spade out!

    I used to keep 'em when i was a bit younger...the perfume didn't make me popular with the ladies though, so when my gill died i gave 'em up for girls instead!!
    They really are great little workers tho...and if you do manage to get a 'good one' they'll give you lovely little kisses AND catch you bunnies.

    Ive got two ferrets. They are 15 weeks old and are so comical, can't wait to bring 'em out for their first hunt. I don't mind digging them out if they lay up, its all good fun, aslong as i feed them before we go out they will have no need lay up and eat, i hope that works anyway. someone i know feeds them before they go out and rarely does he lay up.

    ferrets

    keep them warm when your transporting them, if you stick them down a rabbit hole when their cold there's a good chance they will curl up in the rabbits bedding and go to sleep until they warm up before they go to work. :D

    They do all smell a bit i used to clean mine out morning and night and they had fresh bedding once a week that kept the smell down alot i will say though i never found the smell offensive some women pay a fortune for a musky perfume you get it for free if you handle ferrets. I used to have one ferret and three polecats all hobs, they make excelent pets you don't have to have them just for working.

    smelly

    My ferrets don't smell that bad, the only thing that stinks really bad is their pi$$. other than that they are not very smelly. i clean their hutch out everyday, clean their toys, tunnels ect. every week or so and feed them healthy nutritious food, rabbits, pigeon, dry food, vegitables, fruit. they love it all ands its a good balance of food for them. you can't just feed them muscle meats all the time because a diet limited to meat alone would cause harmful and eventually fatal nutritional imbalances. also i found that when i feed them fresh meat alot they tend to smell more, has anyone else found that?

    pete.
