What beautiful faces!  Are they microchipped?  Here is Spain, dog, cats and ferrets have to be chipped.

Hello no there not microchipped but a lot of owners in the uk do have them done and it is getting cheaper to have it done now ...

Interesting faces though I'm not sure I'd trust them  ::)

Here's an interesting article about microchipping your pets:

Ferrets are lovely little animals. :) We kept them down south. We had one polecat ferret - as these pictures appear to be - which was the dopiest, softest little gill you could imagine! ::)  :lol:

Beautiful!

Not sure about a ferret/chicken combination though.  I had a friend who kept her ferret next door to some ducklings...with disastrous results  :(

Thankyou for the replys ..Oh yes chickens and ferrets would need to be at opposite ends of the garden and always make sure the ferrets are in good cages/runs with good mesh on them ...Dawnuss most people think ferrets are spiteful biting animals there not if bought up correctly and fed a good diet the males can be a bit stinky but if castrated they dont smell maybe your oh needs to meet a few good natured ones he may well change his mind try to find somewhere that have some ..At some of the country shows have a ferret club that have ferrets there to do a bit of pr with .. :)

I once found a starving, dehydrated ferret in my garden. A silver gill apparently.  I took her to a rescue place and fortunately she was recognised by a member of staff as being his cousin's missing pet. That was pure luck. If she'd been chipped it would have been an easy matter to re-unite her with her owner

They are very beautiful, intelligent animals but they scare me to death  :D

My husband has a scar on his face and hand where was been bitten by his father's polecat  :ohmy:

He was very hands on when I found the ferret in my garden but fortunately for him she was quite used to being handled  :)
