OMG they gobbled down the gizzards this morning in less than five minutes! I kid you not. I gave them quite a bit and for once I didn't put them in the food processor. I have to give them more now they are hungry growing kits!
I know you've already spent a large amount of cash, but look into getting a freezer. Even a small 5 cubic foot one could help you stock up when prices are cheap. When I see whole chickens on sale for 89 cents a lb, I buy 4-5. That way I don't have to spend more when they aren't on sale.
We talked about investing in a small freezer, we want to get one for winter in case we get snowed in we want to have plenty stocked up. So it is in on the list, we just need to get a few more things settled first. If we get a freezer I'll be able to place large orders of frozen prey, hubby just doesn't want it sitting with our food for long.
Your mentor, Jackie has posted your menu I like it Congratulations. 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 also 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. Good luck, in a few days I will lock down this thread 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 ;D. ciao
Oh, I forgot to add. Would you mind very much posting your menu to this thread as a summation so that at any time you and others can look at what your final graduating menu looked like and be able to use it as a reference ciao
