I have 4 male ferrets. They all get along fine and sleep together.
When I got
the 4th, I did have to wait til he was double in size (3 weeks) so
he could
hold his own with the others. They really picked on him. (the three
together for a year) After then, they were all fine. I put them into
kit's carrier, but not the other way around. One night I put him
into their
cage for a few min alone, and the next night, everything was fine. I
did put
him in with the others in also, I was watching them. There was an
outside my house (kid vs. car and I saw it outside my window and
being a
nurse, I had to go), when I came back, they were all sleeping
together. So, I
said fine, and cleaned out the kit's carrier and put it away.
