Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Chicken bones completely eaten?

Chris Lloyd,

Does the chicken carcass include the leg and thigh bones too?

The ferrets here will chew off both ends of these larger
bones but will leave the midstems uneaten. I've assumed all
along that they were smart enough to forego eating the sharp,
splintery midstems, but as you say your ferrets consume the
bones in their entirety.

Is this correct that your ferrets consume the entire large leg
and thigh bones?

and the feet. Chris
