You may not want to go thru this lol---but I skinned the mice and pulled intestines out. I also cut them up in pieces and put salmon oil on them as you mentioned. As they started eating them, I did leave fur on them and still cut them up and patted with salmon oil.
I still gut them as it takes just a second to make a snip below the rib cage with the scissors and do a verticle cut down the abdomen to the legs. I pull the guts out with the scissors as well. Mine will eat them whole like that now.
I used to buy frozen ASF rats. My ferrets liked them. They are also considered a different protein from rats and mice. But Perfect Prey and South Fla Rodents quit selling them. I thought about raising some myself, but I could not find any around here.
