Hi and welcome on board Please fee free to prowl, read threads, ask questions and get involved. Everyone's friendly. As far as breeder's stock.....on this forum we have an international group of very qualified breeders but these people usually require someone to be fully mentored before they will part with breed stock. It's not for the faint at heart believe me ciao
Hi and welcome Please feel free to browse, post, ask any questions you may feel the need for, and join the conversations! As for breeding, definitely talk to some of our breeders on board. A full on mentor for it is definitely a good idea.

Breeding is not something to be taken lightly. It is a huge responsibility, huge cost, and is full of heartbreak. Most breeders will want to mentor someone for a couple years before selling them a set of intact ferrets.
Hello. At one point not so long ago I had 9 ferts, 7 rescues. I wasn't even looking for them, they found me. This is a great forum for learning about natural diet and all sorts of ferret info, plus it's one of ethe few I've found with a breeder section, so you should be able to get a lot of questions answered. Welcome.

ty all so much for the kind welcomes! I've been currently talking to some breeders and learning alot from them about breeding. I've been hoping to establish a great relationship with a breeder so I can learn all there is to learn.
I most definately will check the topics out and listen to what everyone has to offer and say. I am so glad I found this group!

Hi, there! As far as websites, I've used rodentpro.com - great selection, good stock price, expensive shipping. There were issues with a bacteria outbreak, I believe, happened before I became a customer and has been resolved - I've used them for mice, chicks, rats, guinea pigs and rabbits, and do like their quality; however, I've started using americanrodent.com for mice, rats and chicks since I get free shipping there size is comparable to rodentpro, but you don't get quite the selection. Worthwhile trade off to me!
Also, welcome to the forum
missnlos1 - when I had to get my guys used to things - I just used a syringe and got them to taste it that way (I make sure to "syringe train" mine either as kits or as soon as they come to me, so they're familiar with it bringing all sorts of things, not just bad stuff. It's a neater way to do "scruff and stuff" sessions, too, if they can take the syringe without stress). If your guys are finicky about syringe feeding, trying scruffing and dabbing some in their inner cheek for a taste (or on their nose, mouth, or paws if they won't just rub it off). Stay positive and calm and full of praise for each session and they'll come around (I've gotten all mine but my newest rescue eating pumpkin, all having EVOO, but I've noticed that some are just set dead against baby food. That seems to be an iffy thing with some guys). Hope this helps And also, when you're ready, make sure to make use of the mentoring application if you need help with switching
