Should I buy a grinder and what brand and model?
I am thinking of buying a grinder mainly for grinding bones.
I am thinking like thighs, turkey wings, chicken back, duck back etc.
Right now, Mui Mui is 5 months old, and she should be given whatever she wants to eat. But she can only chew quail ribs, or quail necks if she is in the mood. And Cheetah has been very lazy on chewing bone, and he only chews quail bone, maybe 2 pieces of 1 inch pieces at most for each meal. He will not even eat chicken wingtips. Of course he will not chew larger pieces of bone-in quail.
So I have been cutting meat, quail, liver and organ in about 1 inch pieces and mix well. I know Cheetah will not eat all bones, so I add some calcium. The amount is little enough some they don't smell it, so it is not enough to make up the bones that Cheetah does not eat.
I am thinking of getting a grinder, and grind half of their bone. For example, if I need 2 lbs of bone in my batch I am making, 1 lb will come from pieces of quail, and another lb will be from grounded bones (of course with correct calculation). Be able to ground bones will also reduce my expense, since chicken/turkey wings provide more bone than whole quail and is much cheaper. And be able to ground chicken wings will give them more skin, which is what they do not have much now.
Cheetah is really bad about eating hearts too, so I am thinking of grinding half of the hearts too. Others will still be in pieces.
Any suggestions or comments? And any recommendation on the brand and model of grinder?
