A jill can produce 1 or 2 offspring per year. The ovulation occurs by neurohormonal induction. When the jill is in oestrus,...

Abstract

As oestrus can be very prolonged in the absence of the male and this can lead to a fatal pancytopenia, ten female ferrets (average weight 1 kg) were injected s/c with 0.5 ml of proligestone at the start of the breeding season (March). None of the ferrets showed any signs of oestrus for the whole of ...
