Exclamation Litter box training problems

I don't understand why they suddenly stopped using their litter boxes. I have two ferrets, one male one female, both fixed (don't know if that matter) and about 4 months old and when they first came home from the vet they both used the litter box almost religiously. Even in a room with only the cage and the litter boxes inside the cage and one outside. There was 2 accidents in like a month. But about a month after I brought them home they started pooing in the middle of their cage, all over the carpets. On the rare occassions when they do do it in the litter box they lie down and sleep in it. I mean gross. I thought ferrets were clean animals (though this doesn't mean i love them less it just means a few more baths. not to sound like a first time ferret parent (which I am) but could they be sick, or are they just upset that they have to be in the cage while I am at work (i work a late shift). Any feedback would be nice.
