I'd very much doubt you'd have any problems with carcases or eggs, though with the eggs, dont over do it, more of an addition than a staple. 👍

Yea there supposed to be quite high in protein and couldn't see a issue with then and a egg or 2 now and then but you never no with it being something not what they would usualy have

Too many eggs can make a ferret bald maybe i've eaten too many as well ?. i'm no in favor of feeding day old chicks either there just a egg covered in fluff they have never had time to make muscle or bone

Not sure if day old chicks are as good as they are only a day old low calcium levels and not much meat...

I used them in my first season of owning ferrets and had no problems but dont use no more

Day old chicks. Best thing for young kits...   Fluk eggs off. Chicks all day any time... 

Best thing for young kits is fresh meat and plenty of it with clean water

Dry food Best this time of Yr. As I said you don't want your  Jill taking  dead things to nest  and flies following.. 

Feed meat as its getting dark them and move the remains in the morning and a Sterling fly trap each side of the hutch cut down on the flies
