Did you by any chance get these ferrets in Ohio ? One of the ferret
shelters there received hundreds from a breeder. Just wondering. If I
could have got some to Montana, I would have got a few. Is best to
quarantine until vet visit. Are they spayed or neutered with scent
glands taken out ? Ferrets will have a strong order if not fixed.
I have had ferrets for 30 years. I have 7 right now. I have 20 books
about ferrets. I would help you if I can. There are also excellent
ferret sites on the internet. People that post here know a lot also.
Happy Holidays again,take care.
