Write up your weekly menu as your guys would eat it, put in your new changes and lets see what you've got. I would think that considering what your little ones are eating that, with the changes and such you should be ready to graduate from the program. You and your guys are doing great. ciao
Not bad. I would like you to add something with the chicks. They're rather like candy, so I would like you to add a boned meat there. I'm guessing that your rabbit is whole with bone in right? If your guys are like mine, they won't usually eat the whole chicken legs, usually eating all the meat off the bone and maybe eating the knuckles but leaving the weight bearing bone. If you add a boned meat with the chicks (at least one of them), then that will give you 6 possible boned meals. This meet your little ones calcium needs. Let me know if you have any questions ciao
Yup the rabbit is whole with bone in. The chicks are whole with bones. They eat most of the chicken wings and legs about half the bone gets eaten per one and they get given a wing/leg each. What other bone meat can I add then?
Doesn't really matter which meat you use....use that day to make a stew type meal for them...whatever is left over. The problem with the chicks is that there really isn't much nutritional value to them. I would feed them like dessert. So if you've got some rabbit left over one week, use the rabbit, chicken legs, wings whatever. Some meat that you want to try or is on sale. Use the chick day as a surprise day....or the something special day. Ok? Otherwise it's good . ciao
How do your guys do with beef bones? I find that my guys usually eat them meat but leave the bone but they're all older rescues and some just don't have the jaw strength to cut into the harder bone. I treat each ferret differently as far as eating bone content, so if your guys are eating the beef bones then definitely it's a boned meat day. ciao
That's great. I think you have it down. Just remember if you do basically 3 or 4 boned in meats, 1 organ and 2-3 muscle meats (without bone) you should be in the clear. Ferrets balance over time is smaller usually a week or 2 than say a dog who can be balanced over a period of several weeks ciao
