My little guy is still on the raw soup. I've been getting a little frustrated with the process of thawing frozen meat and organs everytime I need to make more. Is it okay to keep the organs and meat in the fridge instead? And if so for how long before I should move it to the freezer? If there's an easier way please let me know!
If the meat has already been frozen, I wouldn't freeze it again.
I was told raw meat, especially chicken, should not be fed after 3-4 days after being thawed.
What I usually do is thaw out my ferrets' meat every other day, meaning they have a total of 4-5 meals thawing over a span of 2 days (My male who's Insulinomic receives 3 small meals a day, while my female gets 2 regular meals).
Prep the meat before you freeze so that it is easier and already portioned according to how much is needed. You can also make a large batch of soup and freeze them, put them in bags and use them when required. Ferrets can handle meat differently to humans so the best thing you can do if you wish to store in the fridge is to throw out once they Smell rancid and replace if you want to feed fresh. Take my advice above since that will make storage easier and save on food wastage.
I make it the way abbey mentioned- larger batches, freeze in ice cube trays, then baggie the cubes.
