I agree with everything Mike said but would also like to comment.
Why are you adding milk to the chicken baby food? Is it possible the
milk is causing some tummy problems? Ferrets don't tolerate milk
very well (fat free is no less "milk" than whole milk; just less
fat). I know that milk doesn't sit very well with me when I'm
nauseous. Since I'm not sure why you're adding fat free (i.e. low
calorie) milk I can't recommend a substitute.
