HomeCooking For Ferrets

Ferret’s Duck Soup

1 whole roasting chicken (cut into pieces to fit in the blender; do not remove skin, fat, bones or giblets – small pieces puree better)

1 Tablespoon olive oil

1 Tablespoon Ferretone (or whatever vitamin supplement you use)

1 Cup ferret, mink or high-grade cat kibble

2 Tablespoons fine bran OR whole oats OR Metamucil

3 or 4 Eggshells

4 Tablespoons honey

1 Cup fat trimmings (uncooked; I save trimmed fat for just this purpose)

Puree the chicken with the fat, kibble and eggshells; add water until you make a thin gravy. Pour the mix into a pot and cook for 30 minutes, or until it has the consistency of cream or thick gravy. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Freeze in small portions.
