whats your opinion on breeding a jill twice in the one season...two litters ,one after another..i just got a whatsapp msg,from a lad i bought a ferret from,showed me another litter from the same jill my one was from...it doesnt sit too well with me ,but i do know he breeds soley for money,he had when i called at least 40 ferrets in the garden ,lots rearing,a few finished kits ,away from their mother,i regretted dealing with him to an extent as i dont like giving money to greedy lads,he does hunt the jills but cant be doing enough with all of them as he has loads,not really a big deal just wondering what people thought on the matter

Cnuts trick, absolute no need, one litter takes an awful lot out of a jill imo an a summer deffo ain’t long enough to have 2, even with artificial lighting it’s still a bit of a cnuts trick an I doubt the ferrets best interests were at heart when doing it

Big no no from me. I only breed my jills when I need kits to replace stock and they have one litter no matter what they produce.

I'm the same mind, he breeds like mad, 25 quid a kit, and he must have sold 50 plus kits this year, and refuses to do a day's work,

Sounds like a right cnut tbh, surprised the jill even came back in. I had a very early litter this year and jill stayed out of season. Didn’t think there was enough demand to breed ferrets commercially.

Iv had a load a jills come in again after a litter in the past, not sure if they would have had another litter had I tried tho, as I didn’t try

I'm thinking he will end up with a few unsold, we have a 12 month old Jill and he was saying we were nuts not to breed her, I got her jabbed, no interest in breeding anything for a while

Years ago when I was keeping fezzers, I always had a snipped hob about (I had a top vet), the hormone injection really fuucks the little buggers up. I used to breed one Jill most years to replenish/add to and also sold a couple.... for a 5er ffs. But breeding a Jill twice in a year is crazy no, poor thing must be like a rake.

That's an Irish thing katch, it's only the last few years here Jill and hob is used, I at times slip back to the buck and doe terminology.. I'd hazard a guess and say there's still an awful lot say buck, doe, its not ignorance, it's habit and upbringing

Albino ferrets called "greyhounds" in Ireland too. That one surprised me when I first came over. Oh, and a stone wall is called a ditch here in West Cork. Just different names for things.
