Is there a critical weight for oestrus in the ferret?

in Reproduction

Summary. Information concerning the weight at the onset of a period of oestrus, the timing of oestrus, the age at first oestrus and the lighting conditions was collected from the records of 1364 ferrets and reviewed for evidence indicating that the animals became sexually mature around a particular, critical, weight. None was found, but the results suggest that there is a minimum weight, around 420 g, below which oestrus does not occur.
