is kulling unwanted kits more responsible?

Recommended Posts

Deaf ferrets pose potential behavioral and training problems. Deaf mother ferrets may be more likely to injure their babies, because they can't hear them cry. Deaf ferrets also seem to be more prone to biting, given that they are easily startled and will immediately try to defend themselves. Additionally, they are more difficult to train, because they do not respond to your voice commands.

 

Because of the challenges posed by deaf ferrets, particularly for beginner owners, responsible breeders should be more careful about breeding for color patterns not associated with hearing problems.

 

Hope this helps people understand somthing about waarenberg syndrome

your right, but ferrets with the white stripe are carriers of waarenberg syndrome and have higher chance of being deaf than the std ferret.

I'd be more inclined to believe ferrets with the white stripe CAN be carriers of waardenburgs not every ferret with a stripe would have waardenburgs? Deafness is very common in many white animals not just ferrets
