Here is a possible arrangement that you can do. This is 8 bone -in meals. If I remember correctly--it can be 7-9. U want to have a bone-in meal after an organ and after a heart meal to keep ferret from having lose stool as those two will give soft stools. You can have bone-in meals back to back.
The cow tongue and heart is not considered an organ--but you can use the tongue as a heart meal or a muscle meal. Personally I would use it as a muscle meal unless I could not find chicken hearts or my ferret could not tolerate the chicken hearts. It can be the beef meal that they recommend--or not. Ferrets can be sensitive to chicken and beef.

Your turkey will be a muscle meal. BUT you can also pound some necks or give turkey wing tips---I have never given tips of wings---but knowing my ferrets, I would have to pound them with a hammer. The rabbit I buy from Publix has some hard bones, so the only thing mine can eat of those r the ribs and the muscle meat. I get just one kidney:))) and a whole liver with it. It is a half rabbit. Now your rabbits might not have tough bones like that.
About the mice---- The alternative meal chart uses 9 bone in meals instead of my 8.(so u can just get rid of one of my muscle meals and put in a bone-in to make it more simple to use the chart). So reading across, you see that an adult mouse or other alternative meal takes care of one bone in meal. When you start giving more and more alternative meals it begins to affect the amount of bone-in, muscle, and organ meals that you will give.
