Aye or google LOL i generally put one ferret in for every 10 holes in a burrow so theres no point getting one if your permission has big large burrows you would be all day at one burrow

I've a few permissions with rabbits and this time of year with everything dieing off the holes are easier to get to. I've a terrier which push a few out of cover but would only want 1 ferret just to plop in a fee holes for a bolt

You can keep them on there own, but if you want your ferret to be healthy, body and mind, it's always best to have two.

 

You see a lot of single ferrets walking there cage,like a demented zoo animal,even if still worked regularly.

im my estimation ferrets a wonderfull social creature i have a 6ft high floor to ceiling ,set up with 4 compartments & a big run each day i let them loose for an hour & everytime i go back in they are all cuddled up together , i also think it helps them work together , i gave up on jills last year ,nothing wrong with them at all but just keep hobs now & when the go all queer like they do ,i put each one in his own compartment , mine are purely workers ,even if i didnt work ferrets i wouldnt keep one on its own they need company :thumbs:
