Question More Ferret Questions

So I have my new ferrets, but I still have questions... One thing is that Stitch won't stop peeing on the upper levels. Why??? I keep bleaching it when he goes there to get the urine smell out of it. How do I teach him not to do that? Secondly, Stitch won't stop sleeping in the litter box. He has the whole routine mixed up- he poops where he should sleep and he sleeps where he should poop. It's so gross b/c I'll look over and he'll have his head laying right on top of a pile of poop. He smells so bad!

How do you teach them not to bite fingers and toes? That's a behavior you don't want them to get away with, right? It doesn't hurt, and they do it when they're playing, but it needs to stop right? They love biting ears with earrings too. Someone told me to scruff them and blow and say "NO!" Is that okay?

I am worried about Eli. He is so small. Stitch is double his size and just drags him around and meanwhile, Eli is screaming, but not fighting back. I know they play rough, but should I continue to stop them when Stitch is doing that? It's almost like Eli doesn't know how to act like a ferret. He won't hardly play, he won't hardly fight back... He's so skinny. And he has diarrhea... I'm taking all of them to the vet tomorrow, but could that be why he's not "acting like a ferret?" When I hold him he just sits on my chest and licks my face. He's very much like a dog...lol
