NO Poultry month?
 
I'm sure its fine, but I wanted to run it by you guys -- was thinking of doing a month of NO poultry because that's primarily what my guys are fed on and I'd like to give their systems a break.

I picked up some pre-made rabbit, bison and beef, and ordered THK Verve (which is beef based, but I will only feed it WITH added raw beef), and figure that I can give raw beef bones for the smaller 3 to chew on and Laurel I'm not sure but she cracks teeth on those but she does OK w/ pork bones, so...was thinking just cut out all the poultry for a bit, and give this a go.

I'll switch them over a few days but they handle new things pretty well and I'm not too worried. I still will have to give poultry organs b'c I can't get beef heart that I know of here but that is a negligible amount.

Mostly I don't want to see poultry allergies develop.

Thoughts? Good idea? Bad idea?

I'm sure it's fine. Of course, I don't have any actual research to back that up though :D

I think as long as you make sure they have bones that they can eat they should be fine.

Go ahead and try it. Actually, red meat has more vitamins/nutrients than white meat anyway. I use cornish hens and quail for my bone content and then try to feed the rest as red meat.

I feed a lot of red meat too but use mainly chicken lamb and pork for my bone content

I use lamb liver and kidney for organs as it's less slimy for me to deal with and I got a bunch of lamb heat from the butchers which they go crazy for

They have done well so far :) A bit softer poos the first 1-2 days but now smooth sailing. I'm still using poultry organs the 2x/ week I'm feeding them as I can't find anything else. Oh well.

I find that so odd!! We have everything all in one aisle at the supermarket!! Don't think I can post meat to you pretty sure it'd either go off or get stopped haha

Its where we live...everything has to be trucked in 4-6 hours and our stores are smalllllll. So the choices are limited :( I think we know a guy that owns a cattle ranch but I'm not sure we know him well enough to ask for cow guts and hearts ;-D
