Thought i'd share my experience of buying in my first ferret food order from Raw pet supplies in the UK. Currently it's all defrosting in the bath, then I'll be portioning it up and bagging later tonight.

So, after many hours of chopping, labelling and bagging i have the following ready for Bandida and Ladrona arriving later this week.
All bags are made up to 55g (so around 110g/4oz per day) but can add more seeing as they're youngsters. Will see how it balances out.
17 bags of chopped duck feet 16 bags of chopped lamb ribs 18 bags of chopped duck necks 19 bags of minced chicken carcass 20 bags of chopped Beef heart 16 bags of 1/2 Liver 1/2 Lambs lung 14 bags of 1/2 heart(Duck) - 1/4 Liver - 1/4 Lamb lung or Pig Kidney 28 bags of muscle meat - Either more Beef heart or Minced pork
Also bought some air dried lung too for treats/rewards.
Pretty pleased with the haul, everything was well packaged and labelled. Mostly double bagged in a sturdy cardboard box lined out with 1inch thick polystyrene sheeting. It was pretty much all still frozen on arrival and some of it remained frozen whilst i was chopping.
Excellent, and thanks for letting us know this Once they have some, let us know the quality as well!

Rawpet supplies is my go too for everything other than some organ meals that I get from the supermarket when reduced.
Next day delivery for £6 is great.
ive just been looking at them and theyre so cheap compared to kizebrink, how much cheaper would you say it is compared to feeding kibble I have 2 now on selective which at max cost is 2kg for a tenner, did a mock order for price difference and it was around £21 for everything minus muscle chunks.
im struggling to work out the minimal costs, usually the bag of kibble lasts minimum a month, maybe more where with 2 ferrets eating 7oz a day going off the site that's 1.5kg a week, that's nearly the bag full.
