I wouldnt pay £50 for one...but if the chap is happy with his purchase..good luck to him.

If you asked me how much my working ferts are worth... I can tell you now... i wouldnt part with any of them for a poxy £50.

I have a small dark polecat hob kit now going free to a good working home...if anyone wants it...PM me.

yeh funny thing ferret prices,,, would it be better for ferrets if we all had to pay good money for them???,,, personly i tend to give them away,,, but i dont see a problem with folk paying £20............. i have paid a tenner for one befor..... but its a good while since i bought any...

£50 does seem alot,,,, but i have seen two supposedly half cross eu x ferrets,,, go through the auction at melton for £70 each,,, also seen sivers and the like get £30-40

Were they bred from his 2nd generation Polecat Jill??

He was charging £20 a head for an 8 week old ferret.

£50 for a 3rd Generation Polecat... Mother was a 2nd Gen Polecat... but what was father!?

Holy crap. 50 bucks for a dark ferret cause Mackay said it was a Polecat., Brilliant.
