i don't know much about ferrets but my brother has loads of them - he uses them for working. he hasn't been an animal person - but omg you dare mess with is ferrets and he will have you lol! he treats them really well! i was told that a female ferret will stay in season for a long time until they are eventually mated! also the fact if they are not mates they might get an infection, so their fore it is a must to breed them. my brother was told that if he got one of his males neutered and if he put it in with his females - he would bring them out of their season - so as a result he wouldn't need to breed them. is this true?
