Hillview exotics

Postby Realtree1 » Thu Oct 11, 2012 10:56 pm

So i was looking through hillview exotics sale and price page and they have ferrets on there. Does anyone know if they still breed them, or perhaps does anyone have one from there? They are not very expensive on their prices and they seem to be good breeders so i thought that would be a good place possibly as compared to the heavily over bred marshall ferrets, and there aren't any rescues that close to me so im just trying to get some options.

You should email to make sure they aren't just brokering for marshal as a lot of people do. There are a ton of private ferret breeders out there. Definately the way to go is a private breeder.

I've been pondering getting a ferret for some time now but I do not want a Marshall ferret, so if you find anything out about Hillview's ferrets, please let me know! I am very curious myself.

I emailed hillview and they said they no longer breeding ferrets. So I'm assuming at one time they bred ferrets privatley, but they are no longer doing so. However, I stumbled upon a pretty cool type of ferrets called angora ferrets. They have a long hair gene and it seems to be codominant so they'll get shorter hair when breed to a normal so 1/2 and 3/4 have a medium hair, but anyway they also get short hairs so if anybodies still looking for a private breeder this might be a place to look. They are called carolina ferrets if anybody wants to look at them.

Carolina Ferrets is bad. I can't remember exactly why, but they are not a good breeder. I read about it on The Holistic Ferret, which is a ferrets-only message board. Here; http://holisticferret60.proboards.com/

I was able to find a couple more breeders because of The Holistic Ferret. I just need to ask about shipping.

Ground Effects Ferretry is supposedly a super amazing breeder. They're located in North Carolina. I would love to get a ferret from them but they are so expensive. A ferret costs $300-$350, and then shipping is an additional $350-$550 because they do not allow their ferrets to fly unattended.

Edit: I forgot to link their website; http://www.gfxferret.com/
