    No I wouldn't use any type of poison... that could potentially harm the fish. I'm trying to save the fish [​IMG]

    PartridgeRckgal would you have any Partridge Rock Hatching Eggs for sell by any chance? I've looked everywere and I can't find any and I don't want to get chicks from a hatchery.

    Quote:Hi ChickGirl6, yes I do have PR eggs for hatching. I have sold some to people locally (I live in NW Florida), but I have never shipped them anywhere (not sure how to go about that...). You can see pics of my birds on my BYC page.

    I would love some if you would like to try shipping them, how much would a dozen be without shipping? I've seen some really good posts about shipping eggs and it dosn't look to hard. My zip is 56378 if you would like to see what shipping would be. I would want them around the begining of april.

  9. Send it to ME!!! Legal or not, I'd LOVE to have one. I'd pet him every day (wearing really thick leather gloves), and he could eat all the goldfish in our pond (once it melts).

    Your local wildlife agency should be able to help. If not, just use a humane trap....the kind made of metal wire where they go in to get the food & door closes. Bait it with canned tuna, canned cat food, boiled eggs....then relocate to a new home with water nearby.

    chickensducks&agoose...not smart to attempt to pet a wild otter no matter how cute it is. They will inflict some seriously nasty bites!
