OK cool my last post didn't get sent lol .for the turkey he eats the thin wing part but I think he's gonna need help with the rest ..
For the eggshell powder,do I have to bake the shells before crushing them ?I'm gonna try and go find a cheap coffee grinder cause I'm doing horrible job at making a powder fine enough for my baby boy to eat cause he eats around it if he can lol
No, don't cook them just rinse them out and let them dry. A coffee grinder would be great. I have a bullet blender and use the flat blades for my "coffee grinder," it works well. For the thicker turkey bones, break them up for him. Either with a hammer, ulu, poultry shears, or your new knife. That will give him a good starting point. If you can cut it lengthwise that is even better, though it's trickier to ut that way too. Naturally. Watch your fingers!
havent found a cheap coffee grinder yet and looks like im gonna need to find a better knife, the one i got is not for bones he didnt really eat that much of the turkey legs..he ate the small wing part though.
i gave him a piece of turkey wing and some randon chicken meat that came with the chicken backs, it weighte about 750g (in 2 meals) and i threw out at least half he eats a little bit then goes back to sleep lol
How long are you leaving the food out? He should have access to food 24/7. Meat stays good a lot longer than you may think. Thy won't eat it if it is spoiled. Meat and bones are usually good for 24 hours, meat chunks longer (they tend to dehydrate before they spoil, bones not covered in meat will dry up and need to be removed after 24 hrs), ground meat lasts 8-12 hours, soup is usually good for 4-8 hrs. Whatever you feed in the morning should be left out for him the entire day...
Okay good. When they are free fed (which they should be) they don't necessarily jump in and eat it all right when you put it in but rather tend to go back and munch on it a little here and a little there. It's better for them that way anyways.
Okay so that one is just beef cubes right? Just confused bc you said "or" lol
On the days that you don't give bone, give 1/4 tsp of the powdered egg shell. Even on the organ/heart days. As for other bone sources, are you able to get rabbit anywhere? That is a good source of edible bone, it can be hard to find though depending on where you live. Some places have it easily available. Duck is another good one that I use.
Olive oil is a great supplement, but not necessary. It can potentially prevent ulcers, and it can help make their coats nice and sleek. Fish oil is another option as well, and even better IMO. You can also mix the two. Oil can be given a few times a week. I'd stick to 2-3 times a week, you can give more or less depending on how his poops look. Oil can make their poops softer, so watch out for that. You don't want soft stools all of the time.
Your menu looks good, but do you feel that if something was missing (i.e. the store was out of beef chunks), or you wanted to add a new protein, that you would feel comfortable knowing where and how to make those substitutions to your menu?
