No, not unintentional breeding, all kits are going to experienced homes, and some are going in pairs too which is nice. All weaning well at the moment, and can chew through small bones as well. I've been giving their mum gets a break every day too because she keeps getting restless so been letting her release some of that built up energy, she gets to run around the 6 by 6 foot run the other girls live in for an hour or two while the kits are eating and being handled. So far non of the kits have tried to chew fingers, they're 5 weeks old tomorrow and are very advanced for their age in how they've developed, about a week ahead of themselves.
Also someone who used my best working ferret over their jill this year has shown me the kits, and there's 4 to choose from and I think I'm gonna go with the beanie since I'm getting the working ferret he used castrated in a week and then he can join the girls full time in a few weeks, I'm sure he'll be happier that way too
Sorry I've been a bit quiet, been busy with work and visiting other breeders who aren't as experienced, giving them advice on how to avoid issues such as swimmers and such. I know I go quiet sometimes for a few weeks though, that's more to do with me just forgetting to come online, and then just reading and not typing much. How's everyone on here?
Me and the fuzzys are ok thank you. It's taking Charlie a bit of time to get over the passing of Cleo, they were best buddy's always together, he seemed to take her under his wing from a very young age and they done everything together, he seems to search there court every time he wakes up and she is not beside him. Other than that all is ok, I'm looking forward to getting them out working again

Did have an issue with one of the people having one of the kits though, she started asking far to many questions about breeding when she's only had ferrets about a year, and then found out that she had reserved my kit to pair up with another kit she was getting from someone else too.... And then I was told by her best friend to not let her have the kit, and she's also told me that she's got a half blind hob which she studded out this year and half the litter died that he sired. So she's been refused the sale and then she kicked off calling me a backyard breeder and saying I was being ridiculous, like no girl you being the moron here. Like she's done more too but I'm not gonna go on about it Anyway, the kit I refused the sale of to this girl has been reserved again in a matter of hours, my close friend who's had ferrets as long as I've had them is having the kit now so he's going to live with 4 others
I have a funny feeling lee will be posting a pic of a new ferret soon ! he cant pull himself away from these kits ferret math will hit soon and you know what it couldn't find a nice person to be loved by Bev
