Group shot!We need to start working on getting individual pictures of da lil' pupples. Zeke and Menchi napping near Sara.They're all teething now, so there's around 3-5 rope/rawhide toys in their enclosure at all times.Sara was the first to have a mouthful of hard food, and she seemed to take it pretty well.We're still keeping the on a super soft dog food right now, maybe with a hard kibble for Sara every now and then.
In the enclosureTheir enclosure now includes the hallway that connects the rest of the house to my brother's room(So it's now bathroom shower, bathroom floor, and hallway as their current enclosure), so they plenty of space to stretch those growing legs!
Having a snack with momma.Going to attitudes, Sara and Menshi have had a 180 in theirs.Sara is rambunctious, full of energy, and a wild child.Menshi is much reserved, he won't attempt to teeth on you unless it's really bothering him, and quite enjoys naps and cuddling.
Are they being born in garbage? lol Is that a recommended birthing suite for ferrets?
Well they are not really my pets i use them for hunting so consider them my tools / work buddies. But newspaper in a hutch is the standard here. Trouble is ferrets make allot of mess and i dare not touch the babyes when they are under 2 weeks the mum could end up just eating them. The mum dropped when the hutch was due a clean out so had to leave it a while longer what kinda sucked
The day you put paper in honestly it gets trashed they pee over it drag it all over the hutch spill water / food over it.. very very messy.
They can be litter trained and kept on a rubber type floor also "ferret nation" make those types of cages. But they cost a fair amount and are the type of cage you would house a pet. These ferrets will be getting used regularly for hunting rabbits and will get dirty and plastered in blood so not going to spend silly money on a cage
Currently building them a shed to use instead of a hutch though.
