Haha Little brats. We'll keep working in this until they get it. Let me know how the mix goes and whether you tried the soup or gravy method. Beef is stronger flavored so it can take them longer than other meats to accept but they will get there. You have everything else down, this will be easy compared to the rest of the switch!
Heather (who has to officially approve your menu to graduate) has been super busy and caught up in the Bash, so she hasn't had a chance to look at your menu yet. Sorry for the delay. She is back in action now though and will be checking it out shortly, I just talked to her today.
Oh and as an added note some other red meats you can try if they still aren't accepting beef are: Emu (just learned that one today! Had no clue it was a red meat lol), goat, lamb, bison, moose, venison.
Congratulations (dance) you've graduated and you're ready to walk this path alone, now . You have the foundation to help you feed your fuzzes in a more natural and healthy manner. Please remember that your learning never stops, and dietary needs change from ferret to ferret and throughout each their lives. I would like you to be aware that though you now have the capability and the knowledge to create your little ones diets you are never alone and that your mentor (you need only pm) is always available to you. The list is also a very good resource and you should always be aware that it's available to answer any questions you may have either about diet or care. You may want to experiment with some red meats things like beef, lamb, emu, caribou or elk, venison to name a few. They do offer different mineral compositions and this would benefit your little ones. Good luck, in a few days either Sherry or I will lock down this thread and place it in the archives but be aware that you can always look through it as a reference tool but you just will not be able to post to it. Your mentor will be in to congratulate you shortly (wave) . ciao
