A) Yes, it?s now that time of year when ferrets become hormonal, stamping their authority on territories and becoming physically and mentally ready to reproduce. Unfortunately, your mild-mannered hob ferrets are turning into testosterone-filled animals and though some people do keep intact and entire hobs together, I strongly believe they should be separated when in season. If they do not feature in my breeding plans then I have them castrated so that they can live together and with jills throughout the year.
