Having had ferrets for many years and dedicating myself to the knowledge of diet, husbandry, behaviour, health and disease of these special animals, I am up to start breeding myself. For some years now I have been collecting information about breeding, genetics, different lines and ferrettypes. All this gave me a clear view about how I want to set up lines and how I want to run the ferretry, which shall be in an uncommon way for many.
The goal is to have only a few selective bred litters from pure standard (international) lines, without any in- or line breeding in it. The main focus will lay on healthy background and good friendly character. Secondary the body structure and appearance; harmonious and middle sized. Of course that doesn't mean good looks aren't important, as most of my ferrets will attent shows once in a while.
The diet of our ferrets is based on whole prey. Kits have acces to good quality kibble as well.
Two basic lines to start with:
All our ferrets are frequently and exclusively seen by ferret-vet specialist Hanneke Roest from The Ferretclinic. At least once a year they get a full check-up and their vaccines against distemper. Rabies only if required. If needed they are (preventively) treated with Stronghold or Advocate against earmites and lungwormes (from eating snails).
Our breeding animals are also approved by the Dutch Ferret Breeders Association. All our litters will be checked as well, before placement.
In short: Special ferrets for selective owners.
