A bit blurred picture. My ferret feasting on a whole mallard. I use a old mice cage without a lid. Usually the food will stay in the plastic box so i dont have to start looking for old food and feathers everywhere.
I feed: mice (sizes: large, x-large, weaned, hopper), rats (fuzzy, pup, weaned, medium-sized grown-ups), hamsters (all sizes), quail (all sizes), rabbits with some addition of duck, turkey. One-day-old chicks as a snack. Salmon - in autumn and spring when ferrets are changing coats. Beef and pork rarely comes into their menu.
My baby boy Loki is getting into his first bite of raw meat (thinly sliced chicken liver)! He wasn't interested until I held it up to his mouth with a spoon. I think my boy might be high maintenance. Lol
Before I started measuring, about three weeks after I got them. They were 17 and 18 weeks (whippet female to the right is 17 weeks, bulldog male to the left is 18 weeks in this pic) and are eating chicken livers.
Aircraft flew overhead and startled Adam, but Jippa didn't care lol
This was also about 3-5 days after I got them to a raw diet.
lycorisousa did they finally get into it on their own, or did you have to open it up?
