Hi all! Very Happy
I hope it's not a problem if I write in English. I can understand a bit French, but I'm not so able to write. But, if you want, I could write in Italian too! Smile

My name is Ilaria, and i'm 25. I live in the north of Italy, where I study veterinary Medicine. I am a fancy rats breeder, and a snake breeder too Smile

My little Otello (le vison) became in my life 1 week ago. I was at an Italian expo about exothic pets, as expositor with my rats. There, an Holland expositor had, between several other animals, this amazing minks litter.. i'd never seen a mink before! In fact, I thought they were ferrets!
They were so beautiful, but I immediately thought that they were so, so young. I think they hadn't more than 3/4 weeks.

The day after, a guy bought one of them. He showed me this baby mink, and the poor animal started to cry just after he putted him out from his box. I immediately thought that he needed a lot of care, and in the meantime the guy, started to think that was a bit hard to keep that -so young- mink..
I don't know why, but I offered me to take care of the baby for that night.
..and I immediately felt in love with him.

The day after, I decided to take the mink from the guy. He didn't seem so happy to keep "the crying boy", so was not so hard to convince him.. Smile

By the way.
I don't know what age Otello had, but I can say that he wasn't still able to walk and his weight was 280gr. Now, after a week, he weights 380gr and started to walk around Smile
I try to keep him with me the most that I can, trying to domesticate him. In this moment, in fact, he is sleeping on my legs. Smile

I hope to find some good advice here on your forum! ^_^

Some pics:
Here, the first time I saw him:


1 week ago, the first night with him:




After 2 days:





..today!


What variety do you think he is? Smile

Don't worry, you can answer in French, I will understand too! Smile

Do you have an idea of what colour is Otello?

It's a grey American Mink, but he was so young ! as you said around 3 or 4 weeks, it's criminal to travel from Netherland with a litter !
380 gr is a 5 weeks old tiny mink weight., some of them weigh 500 gr when 5 weeks old.

I wish you the best with Othello. Mr. Green

Edit : this grey is Silver Blue or Sapphire, it's difficult to say from pictures, Siver is a little bit yellow or brow, Sapphire is mostly Blue.

I hope that Otello's brothers and sisters finished in good hands too..
Otello luckily eats, plays and sleeps all the time. I love him so much! I cross fingers for the other little minks too!

Until when they have to drink their mother's milk, first to be adopted?

In the wild from 8 to 12 weeks, in mink farms from 5 to 8 weeks for weaning
Maybe it would be fine to give him some kind of calcium additive

I have some milk for puppies (dogs and cats) but my vet said that it's not necessary to use it, seeing that Otello eats without problems.
I'm giving him the Hill's a/d for now, suited for puppies. : )
What kind of calcium do you suggest?

@Norka Pauol: many thanks! ^__^

Hello Ilaria and welcome here.

Damn. I am afraid I even know who was selling these minks at the expo Sad Mink world is small in Holland. That's criminal indeed. Although from the pics & weight, I doubt he was less than 4 weeks.

Please read the advices as much as you can and feel free to ask if you have further questions.

Hi Kristel!
The conditions of their rodents and of the other animals were not the best, I admit. They had something like 20 ferrets, very young too (not as minks, but very very young).
The girl at the table said that their minks had 5 weeks, but of course I didn't believe it.

I'm trying to learn and search more advices as I can, and I was so happy to found this forum!
I am a breeder, and I know that the net and forums can be a great help Smile

Be careful with the Hill's A/D, it is really rich. And because it is so smooth it won't help him chew. Now that he is 5 or 6 weeks, you should start giving him chicks (mixed to start with).

I already gave him some chicken mixed with a/d yesterday, cut in little pieces, under advice of the vet. I will continue! : )

I don't know, for example, If I have to give him food -ad libitum- or only some time in the day. For this first week, I gave him whatever he wanted everytime he woke up, to make him gain more weight He could.

Hi Ilaria. I feels strange to say, as I've been on this forum for 2 days, but: Welcome!
Nice to have another English-speaking member. I'm from Holland and my French isn't that good either, so I'll write in English all the time.

I'm glad to hear Otello fell in your hands, and I really hope all goes well (as mink aren't the most easy animals...).
The pictures are so cute, especially the first one, when you don't even know he'll become yours, and you look like a lovely duo already! Very Happy

Hi Agnes, and thanks for your welcome! : ))
You made the same comment of my friends, about the first pic!! Laughing

I know that minks are not so easy, but I have a lot of time and I'll try to dedicate him as much attentions as I can. : )
