Anyone wanting to reserve a kit for 2017 please fill out our Questionnaire.
Prices are as follows:
Half angora (standard mother to full angora father) and semi angora (a semi is defined as almost angora but not completely, so anything above a half angora that isn’t full angora) from £65-£180.
Full angora’s from £180-£225.
These prices include microchip and a goody bag. Goody bag includes a small supply of kibble, bedding/litter, hammock, blanket and a toy.
We also allow the use of an animal courier. We will also be able to offer transport to you by us in some cases so we can meet and answer any questions you might have. Travel to local areas near us is usually around £10-£15 to deliver a kit to you. Travel within most of the UK that isn’t local is normally around £45 to deliver to your door via us or courier. We do allow them to travel anywhere outside the UK and also within the EU (which was around £150 last year). For those requiring passport and rabies vaccine for travel within the EU, there will be an additional fee of £80 per ferret.
When purchasing a FBF ferret, we are always available to answer any questions through-out ownership and we do ask the owners to keep in contact with us regarding health or any other issues. Your feedback helps us better our lines and keep records of any health problems that might arise. If ever you are in the position that you are unable to care for your FBF ferret, please let us know by either informing us so we can help with the transition to new ownership or return the ferret back to us. We can’t keep track of their health if we don’t know where our ferrets are.
Kits will not be reserved until a deposit is paid, deposits are non refundable unless something happens to the kit while in our care. Deposits are due by 4 weeks of age. The rest of the payment is payable at 8 weeks or no later than 3 days before courier is due to collect or pay in person if collecting.
Our kits do not have a set age we home them at. It all depends on their growth and development. But usually our kits are ready to go to their new home around 9-10 weeks of age. Any kit who has been reserved and hasn’t been collected by 12 weeks of age will incur a boarding fee of £2 a day or £10 a week unless arrangement has been made prior or if the kit is flying to another country.
I will give you a quick brief on how things are done here as far as moving moms and their kits. First the jill will move from Suzanne’s home (unless already residing with me) about 7 to 10 days before due date where she will move into the quiet maternity ward here. This gives her time to get familiar with the new smells, sounds and routine. The kits will then stay with me until they are around 6-7 weeks of age where they will then move to Suzanne’s. There they will get used to the dog, cat and kids. It also gets them used to indoor sounds like the vacuum and television. They will also get play times out in her home and outside in her runs. Most of them stay with Suzanne until they leave to their new homes but sometimes they do come back here. We work everything on kind of a rota and we usually just go with whatever works best for us and the ferrets at the time and because we both work part time, we are able to devote lots of time to the moms and kits.
