Menu looks great and it is very common for them to eat the head first. They will eat the butts when they are hungry enough! lol You do not have to waste them just hold off on their next meal until they eat the rest. Yes, it messes with the menu a bit but just push what you were going to feed to the next meal. Whbole prey is good for 2 days depending on room temp. They and you are doing so awesome!
Well they chewed the back legs off but didnt seem to be much interested in the rest, meat is still ok so i cut the breast part in half and wanted to see what they would do before i feed their chicken necks tonigh
Well i think we are going to press todays whole prey pretty late almost to tomorrow and tonights organ dinner will be in the am or late tonight, doesnt look as if the girls touched anything of the quail today
True true, soo spazz did ok with the whole quail, mimi not so much, i maybe should try chopping into chunks....got a new ferret nation cage today so been putting it together and cleaning..so tired haha, chicken wing tomorrow and organ meal with hearts, chicken wing will be served semi busted up bone wise

So we are out of mice as I only purchased a sample order, we do have quit a bit of whole prey quail........when I put in next order for whole prey which I'm aiming for in a week or so I plan to purchase more mice, rats if I can get them, and possibly a guinea pig or two to try. So far the girls aren't taking to the whole prey but im guessing its because they are semi still working on bone? When I put in chicken wings, drumlette or such they will chew off the tip of the wing but not touch the rest, now if I put in a Cornish hen, rabbit or duck with bone in and the bone busted up slightly they have no issue.....no I do have a good amount of their meat pre prepped with busted bone, but as I buy newer im trying to incorporate a little of both in each weeks meal....like if I do a day of bone in Cornish hen or rabbit I try to put in a day of quail or chicken with the bone slightly broken like hit 2-3 times if that with a meat cleaver. suggestions?
