Hi. I'm looking for a bit of advice please. I'm currently feeding my two ferrets a raw frankenprey diet. They love it and I've no problems. However I was wondering about making some alterations in order to make things a bit easier and cheaper.
I've just bought a lamb mix grind for them to try. I believe these mixes need to be balanced with other meats?
The mix is 100% Lamb: 40% rumen, 15% meat, 15% meaty ribs, 10% fat, 8% heart, 8% liver, 4% lung.
Could I replace their current organ meals with this? Even though it contains 30% meat/bones? Possibly also replace one bone-in meat meal if it needs to be balanced out?
Their current diet is made up of duck necks, chicken hearts, lambs liver and lambs kidneys (frankenprey ratio).
I haven't given them any of the mix yet. It's possible they won't like it as they can be picky little buggers sometimes. I'm just exploring possibilities.
Hi lamb is a great food for them as its high in fat and ferrets need fat mine love it as it has heart liver etc sure you change one organ meal with this when you go food shopping for your fuzzies think cheaper cuts of meat tough meats that we would need to stew and stew are wonderful for them as it makes them work there jaws and chew ( helping to clean teeth ) I normally hang around the meat isle in big supermarkets waiting for price reductions just before the stores close I make up meal size portions and hey presto more variety for the freezer and fuzzies lol my guys will be enjoying there xmas turkey round about the 27th december and the 3rd of jan this is when my local stores reduce prices into bumper bargains lol Bev
