I don't think there are many if any ferret owners on the forum now but there was a thread a while back which will give you some basic info about ferrets here.
They're not the easiest animals to keep as pets so it would probably be worth looking to see if there's a good ferret forum out there somewhere or contacting a breeder for some advice.

HC isn't a place for ferrets sadly, I recommend this ferret forum Home | The Holistic Ferret Forum

I wouldn't feed them human food unless you're willing to source high quality raw meats and such.They don't digest plant matter,being obligate carnivores just like cats.

Spay and neuter is a tricky subject.It is known to be detrimental to the health of animals especially done early in life(there's a known link between spay and neuter and adrenal disorders,obesity potentially in relation to adrenal disorder,higher cancer risks including cancers that are extremely rare if seen at all in unaltered animals,and many other issues including behavior problems).
