With grinds it’s the same as frankenprey, you really need three proteins and better if four. But, the more the merrier. They tend to eat more grinds than frankenprey or whole prey because they’re easier to swallow fast, so feed them until they are full at first, then keep an eye on their weight and cut back a bit if they get too fat. You can judge a ferret’s fat by holding them up from the armpit/chest area and letting the body dangle, they should be a tube or a trapezoid if they insist on sticking their legs out. If they’re pear shaped they’re a bit too heavy. A lot of people let them get heavier in the winter months because it mimics the wild polecat’s lifestyle of bulking up for winter.
Thank you, I have hearts and liver that I can add to it to make sure she gets enough of it. I'm going to see if my meat mark can grind up bone for me so I can start giving her bone. I have been giving her Stella and Chewy to mix it with real meat, but that gets expensive,
