Hi @kelso - I am sorry that I didn't realize your thread had gone unanswered. I count 7 bone-in meals, 1.5 meals each of heart and liver, and >3 proteins. If you can add some other bone-in meals like duck, rabbit, or turkey whenever you find them that would be fantastic. I have submitted your menu to Heather for approval. I apologize again that your thread fell off.
Okay @kelso - I talked with Heather and we both agree. Your current menu definitely needs more actual edible bone in it. Bone meal is great to use for a couple of meals, but the fact is we just don't know for sure if/how the processing of bone meal may alter its nutritional content. As such, it should really be used as a minority of the "bone-in" meals. Do you have access to any other bony meats? Turkey (necks, ribs, spine, wing tips), duck (any bone but the thigh bone), and rabbit (all bones) are great options. Some ferrets can eat pork button bones/rib-tips or oxtail, but not all can. Another option that works in a pinch and is better than bonemeal, is to add chicken feet to a boneless meat.
