This is my favorite all around ferret duck soup recipe.  It makes enough for about 2-3 ice trays, per the recipe.  I feed my ferret 1-2 cubes twice a day.  This recipe will last my one ferret about 1.5 weeks.   Will have to change recipe accordingly for more ferrets.

Ingredients for Ferret Duck Soup: 

1 cup dry high quality ferret food.

1 quarter chicken fully cooked and deboned.

2 cups water used from boiling the chicken.

2 hard boiled eggs (leave shells on and include for extra calcium).

10 Papaya tablets (aids in digestion).

1 Calcium Tablet 500mg.

1 tsp Ferretone or Linatone.

1 6 oz can Iams (or other HIGH quality food) Cat or Kitten food.
