Are you gonna be having a the females neutered? It wouldnt be a good idea to get a male if the girls are able to have babies!!! You really dont wanna go breeding them i wouldnt think!! I would get another girl to be safe if i were you. xx

If the females are spayed then a male should be okay but if they aren't I wouldn't get a male. Also you will have to quarantine the new ferret in case he/she has a disease, you don't want all three getting it. Then introduce them in a neutral area so they aren't territorial. Hope this helps

I'm not sure if the females prefer other females over males. It sounds funny but I may be wrong.

I wouldn't do that because if they got into a fight with the unowned animal then you could end up paying the bills...I would just bring a female home since the females are already getting along with each other. If you really want a male you can quarantine it and then slowly introduce the females to the male. If they never get a long then you can have three ferrets with two different play times, not the best solution but the only one I can think of at the moment.

I remember someone telling me that if you own a female ferret then you need a boy to go with her for the safety of her. Something about the female needs a release and only the male can help her if not she could die but I am not sure how true this is it may be something you'd want to check out though.

That's only if the female isn't spayed. If they don't go into estrus then there is a blood build up and they die. That's what I read...or think I read
