I'm not sure the price for a kit but why don't you try shelters? They usually have some ferrets that need a good home.

There's a huge shelter in NC called Ferret Guardian. They generally have about 20 ferrets at the time.

I know a lot of people are down on Marchall's ferrets, but I personally don't find them to be bad. Yes they sell to labs,but a lot of that testing goes to help cure ferret illnesses , yes they ues artifical lighting.....most breeders do.......they wean at a normal age.......Anyway most of what you hear is unfounded....At one time I had 5 Marchall(other 2 were resued breeder ferrets I never bred them they were in terrible shape)ferrets all were in perfect health, all died of old age(7-9 yrs. actually). Basically if you don't want to adopt and can't find a breeder....purchase a Marchall(from good pet store).
I said earlier that I rescued 2 breeder ferrets that were left at my vets in a hamster cage! eating cat food(I feel only science diet KITTEN formula and quality ferret food mixed is the onlyway to go ---never CAT FOOD!) After a stay w/ my vet , we ate duck soup, cooked liver,lots of ferrovite.....the male(weighting only 1/2 pound) died a week later! I also went to 5 different breeders(long time ago) none of which I found to be good, at all. 3 had ferrets living in feces,1 feed cat food w/ high levels of plant material in it, and lastly ferrets in aquariums!!! After seeing those I decided Marchall's was my way to my furbabies. Also I am a rabbit breeder I sell only breeding stock and pets, but have many other great rabbit people as friends that also sell my breed and "meat rabbits" I find nothing wrong w/ them either.

Thats ok! When they say that you can't have them in the city they mean in the Bronx, Harlem, Queens, BK, and L.I. But you can have them up state and in staten Island. But I really don't care about them because they not going to do anything to me. I had found a pet shop near my school that sells them They have 2 lil ones right now. And they are so cute.
