well, Constantine doesn't seem to care too much for his quail. He'd much rather eat mice... And me with plenty of quail and chicks. Oh well, He'll get used to it. I'll start rationing the mice.. LOL
So, In my shipment, I also got a couple of large rabbits. How should I cut those up for him? they're MUCH larger than I expected, so, I cant just toss them in there whole. But, they are fully furred, organs and all, rabbits...
Also, so, here's what I now have available for him. I want to get on some kind of more balanced schedule for him.
I have mice (large and pinkies), 2 large rabbits (I would think I could quarter these somehow, right?), rats (these fall into the same food group as mice tho, right?) quail chicks, chicken chicks, guinea pigs. Plus of course the "normal" stuff of the chicken, hamburger, etc (stuff I can grab at the grocery store). I'm not quite sure tho on what kind of groups and schedule I should go with here.

With Constantine, I'd go for whole prey 3-4 days a week(if you want to do that much- I know it can get costly!), alternated with different raw meats/meaty bones. If he's eating whole prey, odds are he won't need the ground beef now. And rats, I believe, are a separate protein from mice. How are the others doing, by the way?

Hi, sorry, kinda fell off the planet there for a little while. Got a little crazy around here to say the least... I'm sorry!!!
Things are moving along pretty well though. For those who still arent taking to the raw, I've been mixing commercial raw into the kibble. This is working really well, and I feel better knowing that thye are al least getting most of the benefits of raw.
Constantine is still doing great and a handful of the others are starting to get curious on the whole prey goodies he's always eating.
We've had a massive heat wave arouns here (been over 90 degrees for about a week now... )...
I'm going to the Fandango next month and will be bringing 2 or 3 of my crew with me. I know Im bringing Constantine, and Princess Penelope. Not yet shore who else I'll bring though.

Ok. Can you tell me who is where with the raw, or even with the whole prey? Are you still doing a soup/mush with any of them? And who is on the mix of kibble/commercial raw? Any problems with digestive upsets with it? Etc., etc., etc.!
