I ran out of the first batch that I made this year so I made a new batch this morning and tested it out they snarfed it up. This batch added extra eggs just in case any females have eggs developing. I use the whole egg crushed shell and all for added calcium. Here is the recipe I used today: these are food balls that contains 2 lbs venison burger, 2 lbs mixed vegetables(minced in food processor), 2lbs Wardley turtle sticks, 1/2lb mixed fruit, 6 eggs (whole eggs with crushed shells). They ingredients are mixed in a 5 gallon bucket and then made into balls and put on wax paper on a cookie sheet and then placed in the freezer. Once they are frozen they will not stick togather and can be placed a plastic baggies (enough balls in baggie for one feeding depending on how many boxies you are feeding) and stored in the freezer. Then just take out a bag and put it in the fridge to thaw the day before you feed. The boxies love it and it's balanced nutrition for them.
