Preparing for the "Big Day" :)  
Been doing a TON of research - a lot of it is recall since I began my journey into the realm of the weasel but...

The dry kibble I want to feed the furry monster is a toss up between two different types: Innova Dry Ferret Food ($9.95 for 2.5lb bag) and The Ferret Store's Superior Choice ($12.99 for 10lb bag).

As far as treats go (I'd LOVE to feed this to the furries in lieu of the dry kibble but I can't afford that) the winner is: Wysong Dream Treats and Wysong Archetypal 2.

I am also in the process of figuring out how to modify my wire cage to insert tubing that they can run around in. I will definitly need the tube mounting plate attached to the cage somehow. This will need some definite thinking because I *really* want to be able to add tubes to their home. They're tunneling creatures by nature so it would be great for them.

Congrats
Enjoy your new babies they are a lot of fun. It's always nice to see ferret parents feeding their fuzzbabies "regular food." My fuzzies go bonkers for chicken wings, hearts, and livers.
I nixed the litter box earlier, lol. I add paper to their Midwest Ferret Nation and change it a few times daily. Everyone is happy.
