Very sensible, as a hob can inflict some serious damage to a jills neck if left too long. Good to see you are doing things correctly. Atb

YOU WILL FIND ONCE THE HOB HAS DONE WHAT HE NEEDS TO DO HE WILL SHOW LITTLE INTEREST IN THE JILL .

Sorry dave but i totally disagree. If they are kept together the hob will keep repeating the process over and over. They may take time out after each mateing to clean themselves and perhaps eat and drink, but he will keep harrasing the jill. Over the 40yrs i've kept and worked ferrets i have seen some bad injuries to some jills necks, simply because they were kept too long with the hob. Atb

Don't think I have. Been around ferrets all my life. The hob will try but it's down too the Jill. Don't make out am think when I know what am on about. Seen with my own eyes.

Dont talk so much rubbish. The coitus or the phisical act of mateing is extremly violent, the hob will grab the females neck and drag her around the cage mounting her several times, the jill will scream in pain, but the whole process is essential to induce ovulation, that is why the hob grabs the jills neck. I've kept and worked ferrets for 40yrs mate. What you have seen is nothing to do with breeding, infact i have seen that many times with two females.

Or yours is gay. lol Yes Dave some ferrets can be more gentle than others. However read post 16 again, the op stated that when he checked this morning the jill seemed fine, however her neck was wet, which indicated to him that the hob had mated again with her this morning. Atb
