I have been struggling with my new ferret trying to transition him to raw . He has been on soupie and does not like hitting those slivers. If they r a bit too big to his liking, he takes off running and spits them out. Today is his day out for free roam, and I heard him crunching on something. Thinking it was plastic---I went over to the couch and lo and behold there was a stash of boney stuff behind it, and he was munching on a piece. Yea! " You are getting bone-in pieces from now on" (hoping anyway).
My Phoebe was like that too while on soupie---just all of a sudden found some jerky and started crunching away. I guess some like dried meat.
Ahahaha! Good boy.. now let's hope that he's gonna take straight to some bone-in pieces! My snooters like munching on dried raw chicken/duck feet as chews occasionally, I keep a close eye on poops when they do this because they're so bony. But I have one who will eat the dried raw chicken feet but he doesn't want fresh raw chicken feet. x.X
Hmm, so when you have soupie with slightly bigger slivers, he eats the soupie but spits out the slivers? Does he do that with the big and the smaller slivers or only the big? If only the big ones.. I'd see if maybe he'd be okay to eat a bowl of all slivers at the small size and sneak in some slightly bigger ones into that if he is willing to eat a bowl of only slivers. I managed to trick one of mine like that before, poor sod I'm sure thought they'd all be the same size since it sure looked like it at first glance, haha.
