Although I would not say that it is crucial to the diet (lots of folks feed frankenprey without any fur or feathers and their ferrets are fine), you are correct that fur is beneficial; it helps keep things moving in the digestive system and produces some nice whole prey poops. However, in my experience rabbits have too long and dense of fur for my ferret to eat. He doesn't like to bite into his meal and get a mouthful of thick fur lol (and can you blame him?) In that case it would be best to skin the rabbits you feed. If your ferrets will eat the fur, then skinning is optional.
