This cam is focused on the Nesting Cage of one or more ferrets. In the spring we will feature jills ( female ferrets ) nesting and raising their young.
Once we have a pregnant jill in the Nesting Cage, the Cam will remain on until she gives birth and raises her kits.
When it is appropriate the view will change to inside her nest box and we will have an up close view of the birthing process as well as the new babies.
Sadly, sometimes things don't go to plan. Sometimes a jill needs Help! or sometimes a kit will pass away. We try our best to anticipate any problems before they start but, In the event of an emergency, the camera may go suddenly dark or a message of GONE TO THE VET! may appear. Please be patient and we will update as soon as we are able to do so.
This is a warning up front! Ferrets are Obligate Carnivores! This means they require meat to be healthy and their bodies can not digest vegetable matter at all. These ferrets are often fed on Humanely killed whole prey and that may be in view at some times.
Welcome again and Please enjoy the Cam!
