Come on ferret lady  say summat. Don't be scared of me. I'm butter in your hand remember.. And my kits are lovely  Mmmmmm. All mine.. 

I didn't intend to respond to any more of your nonsense but, since you asked so nicely, I'll post one more time...even though I know it's a lost cause that anything I say will result in better care for your ferrets.  l'll tell you why no one told you that your kits look well.  Because they don't.  First of all, they lack condition, undoubtedly due to their inadequate nutrition and subsequent dehydration.  Look at the sunken eyes of the kit in the first photo...a classic sign of dehydration.  Polecats evolved to get most of their moisture from their prey so ferrets don't have the thirst instinct needed to keep hydrated when fed a dry food.   Kibble fed ferrets are chronically moderately to severely dehydrated and it's usually worse in young kits like these.  Hopefully the new owners (if there are any) will know enough to recognize that they are in desperate need of good food and proper care.

Right way mate.

I always used to put the rabbit in the run though, let her get out a bit but at her at her leisure, that was at 1-2weeks. Before that; meat right where she can get to it, in the nest ;)

I've had several litters of 12-14 kits...I counted at least 16 of these.

I haven't spoke to Socks so can't really say but in the past I had several Jill's all bringing kitts up together. Largest litter (combined) 22.
