How do you breed ferrets with different eye colourations?

Edward Cook
To the best of my knowledge you either get red eyes or black(ish) peepers.

In theory, and over a lot of generations, you could breed a line of white ferrets with black eyes but only if you mated black eyed to black eyed ferrets.

By line breeding or inbreeding this would be possible but you would have to breed a lot of litters over many years for the results to be consistent.

When all’s said and done though it seems to me a pointless project and personally I have little interest in what a ferret looks like or how interesting its eye colouration is.

A rabbit doesn’t care about it, so neither do I!
