Yep, OldMink is right on. A ton of work and not much fun.OldMink said:They always smell and they are never friendly. Pets they are not. Regardless of little ditties you may have heard, mink can be hard to get to breed. If you have a successful mating never let the male anywhere near the little ones. They require a specialized diet if you wish to keep your mink healthy. Other than that I know nothing about raising mink.
