I ve had ferrethood thrust upon me! My boss and his son have asked me to settle their new ferret kit in while they go away for the weekend. I have minced beef. I have ferret nuggets. Nowhere on the pack tells me how much food and how often to feed.
The internet articles I ve found are mostly American, and once again no one mentions quantities or timing. Can anyone help please?
Do you the prepared pellets? It is dead simple: put a palm sized mound in a bowl. When it is finished refill. Ferrets won't overeat and haven't got an food-inhaling eating style like dogs. Ferrets are lovely lovely pets. Hope you have fun with this little one.
Agree with purple. Ferrets eat what they need and will stash any leftovers to save for later. If you refill their bowl when you notice it's empty you won't go far wrong. Just make sure they have access to plenty of water.
Ferrets are lovely, great fun & very playful. We have two & they are like kittens who've never grown up
Ah purple thanks! I suppose that's what I was asking, if its possible to overfeed, but I dont want to starve the poor little thing either. I hadnt appreciated how beautiful their little faces are. Reluctant to chance this wriggly little thing on the kitchen scales, its a bit of a houdini, and dont want it to escape in my temporary care!
