They <span style="font-style: italic">always</span> smell and they are <span style="font-style: italic">never</span> 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.

Yep, OldMink is right on. A ton of work and not much fun.

Nasty critters. I've seen one of the litter draws blood and they all dive in and eat it. I've known of guys that thought they had one tamed, only to end up with stitches.

Too many regulations and you are at the mercy of the market. The last couple of years have been great for the mink rancher but how long would it last.....
