They are mostly very small sunfish and bass mixture, I contacted the DNR in our area by phone and they said there was a high number of cases of this in WV and Oh. so far this year, the cause was lack of oxegyn. I googled it and I got the info of "Summerkill" and also in winter "Winterkill", both lack of oxegyn. My pond is about 250' long x 80' wide and one end 150' wide, and if I were to guess aprox. 150/175 fish.
Dr. Laura Devlin,
Thank you for all your help and info., the fish has been in there since Friday evening and we ran out of daylight yesterday evening working at the horse barn. My sons and I are going to try to remove as many of them that we can this evening, we were going to put them in the loader bucket and dump them back in our woods far away from the the pond. Thought that it would be good coyote food, but was worried may make them sick so do you think we should bury them or just spread them on the ground?
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX
Thank you so much,
Oh, How many times did I hit it, sorry for the confussion !!!
Sorry I meant to do it twice, I put the first amount in and noticed I did not rate your reply
and also meant to put in $50.00. So I will call them and I really enjoyed chatting with you
and getting you knowledge. Hope to talk when I need help again, have a great day.
Hey I need your advise or direction, I have two new baby ferrets 15 weeks now. when I got them they were almost 12 weeks and just in one week they were litter trained, and even in our bathroom where we keep the cat litter, we turn them lose in there and when they have to use the bathroom they run to the cat litter pan. i bought them a two story cage and they were using there litter pan until last week I bought some litter in bulk made of news paper called "Old News" and they did not like it and it was dusty and smelled. They stopped using the litter pan and going in the corner of there cage, I changed back and they now just sleep in there clean litter and go in the corners, it has been 5 days now and I'm pulling my hair out. I even put cat litter in there litter pan today and one did start using it but the other still went in the corner. might be on the right path but not sure if they could be around normal cat litter that much. One girl named Girddy and a boy named Bear, I need help on getting them back on the litter, any Ideas?
I have tried the old litter (pellets) and even put the urine in it. They only use it 30% of the time and are still going on the cage floor. Is there a spray that would detour them from going on the floor corner? They are really good about going in the cats litter pan in our bathroom, but had an accident Sunday. We love these little guys, they are so much fun but want to try to train them without scolding. They are getting the hang of "NO" by just being consistent and picking them up and rerouting what ever they are getting into. My wife gets a kick out of me a grown man having pet ferrets, she trains horses and teaches kids to ride Western and English. If you have any Ideas I would greatly appreciate it,
I just want to get them on the right path before it gets out of hand.
