Actually I haven't had any issues with them being picky about organs or proteins. Basically if I have a duck wing I will cut it in half where the two larger bones meet at the joint and then cut each bone into 4 pieces. With organs/hearts/muscle meats, I am able to leave very large chunks and they will just chew into them themselves!
They're not picky what so ever, it's quite enlightening and if they dont chow on something right away I will put a dab of ferretone on top and that will get them going but I haven't had that issue in a while! As for giving them chicken, I would like to put that off at the very least until this coming Monday, I just acquired the 143 and would like to dedicate all afternoon tomorrow to modify it I can definitely try like chicken backs or something come monday as those are very accessible here!
I think they are ready for their graduation soon, that is if you find my menu writing skills acceptable! lol
Basically, They're doing splendid and by the way thank you for recommending worlds best cat litter it is fantastic both for them and my rabbit !!
I went to a different supermarket today and ended up buying some lamb riblets (they look soft and I really want to expose them!) and chicken backs. I wrote a menu for this week so I think it will suffice. Take a look
Monday - Lamb Riblets, Duck Feet Tuesday - Duck Wing, Chicken Backs Wednesday - Cornish Hen Thursday - Beef/Pork Heart, Beef/Pork Liver ( I can't remember whether or not the beef or pork is older, Ill check the dates and use the older ones up first!) Friday - Goat Leg, Turkey Neck Saturday - Half Quail, Pork Heart Sunday - Chicken Backs, Duck Feet
I think it's a good menu and if they react well to the chicken I can go get chicken wings for them too !! (although I am sort of cautious about them eating chicken wings since they are so hormone induced! ) Let me know what you think and we'll see how they do with the chicken this week! Fingers crossed!
These were the smaller bones, I did try to smash them but they were rubbery in texture so I just cut them into chunks, they ate them no problem! I did speak too soon though since Pandora ate the fat so quickly, she vomited out 2 chunks of it literally right after, I felt so bad. Then she just continued on as she was lol.
I'm so sorry I didn't post earlier! It's been sort of a crazy week with making Peter his cage and him being all depressed. I think the animals are much happier. I was also very scared and worried about the fact that Pandora threw up again yesterday! I gave her quail as scheduled, I'm thinking maybe because I defrosted it quickly instead of letting it sit in the fridge over night I just put it in cool water and left it on the counter for 2 hours? I don't know but she was throwing up a lot yesterday! She couldn't get out what she wanted to... perhaps it was a bone that she didn't chew properly, she has a habit of eating VERY quickly!!
I'm very concerned although she is not showing signs of discomfort and plays regularly!! I've been giving her ferret lax since yesterday and have not found anything in her poop. I'm freaking out it's affecting me a lot, I love the girls so much, I wish for nothing to happen to any of them!! She's eating normally and has a very healthy appetite, poop is more mucousy but thats from the ferretlax.
Other than that, the girls did not react badly to the chicken they liked it but they're not eating as much anymore, perhaps they have gotten used to the raw since I'm starting to notice a huge difference in their fur now (which also makes me think that since they are growing in new coats, it could have been a hairball?!).
I wrote a menu for this week. Again, the organ meals are in twice this week since last week I only gave them 1 organ meal When I do not give a description as to which type of meat (pork, beef etc) it's because I will go by the date of which one is older. I think it's Pork to be honest and Beef for the hearts, I just keep mixing it up, if you would like it more specific let me know and I will check for sure.
