Good age that is👍. I know colour doesn't mean anything, it's working that counts but I do like a nice white jill when it comes to ferreting. 

Always had albinos, don't no why but I wouldn't have anything else .

Moocher you obviously looked after her good thats an amazing age for a ferret I've only had them to ten year old. It's a credit to you and the care you gave her sad she is gone but she had a good life.

Lost two of my old ones end of the season in the spring one just dropped dead as I was feeding her the other faded away just got thinner and was gone no where as old as yours at eight both sisters.

Got two kits to replace them both sisters again I nearly always buy two sisters.

Atb.

Cheers Arry

Some age that I think the best I have done is 8 or 9. Out of interest how did you bring her out of season each year jab or hob or did you not ?

I can't answer for moocher but the last Jill I had that got to 9 I think didn't come in season in her last summer...

Prior to that Tomo how did you handle her seasons ? Only reason I ask if my oldest jill was spayed.

the previous 2 seasons my hobs who she lived with mated her...but I think because she had only just started in season she didn't produce any litters...not very scientific ..I confess the first time this happened it was an accident as I didn't separate her in time....the following year I thought I might just get away with it again...so it was done on purpose..maybe more luck than judgement...

where ever possible get a vasectomy hob to cover them
