Thanks all,

appreciate all the comments and esp the suggestions.

The ferts are all settled in nicely now and have made a right mess of the Palace.

I have had to put litter trays all the way down one side to try and get them used to going in a tray and not everywhere. This is now working nicely. Will slowly remove trays until there are just corners ones later. Much like training dogs.

I removed the ramps when the babies arrived as they were all falling off everytime they tried to climb one. These went back in yesterday and for the first time they were able to go up to their nesting box. Much ferret mayhem! Gives them a whole new level to play on.

Will get some pictures of them all sson.

Hi Darren,

I don't have a wheel, I was (against my better judgement) going to make one rather than buy one.

Trying to buy a large box of spare time on Ebay just now as I am too busy.

I will try and get some pics with the fab four in there.

I have had to redesign it a few times as they showed me the errors in my design :-) But apart from a few tweaks like raising the door lip height so they didn't just pour out, everything is pretty much as it was.

Where's our rabbit?

The grey litter you can see in the tray is stuff I get from the farm. It is recycled paper chopped up. They tested it to see if it would be any good for the cows but found that when it got wet it balled up into clumps. So there are several tonnes of it up at the farm in sacks for me to use as ferret litter. :good:

Fantastic piece of work there pal,,, i'm sure your ferts think they are in heaven with all this room to explore around

even if some people would go to the quater of the bother you have then all are ferts would be such a happy family to think some people keep these wee beauty's in boxes no bigger than shoe boxes and then expect them to work eh!!
