Re: Texas Freeze Dried Chop success

So Nike continues to eat her chop served as either breakfast or dinner. Tomorrow I'm going to try to hydrate it with plain water now that she's readily eating it.

Cost? I'm giving her about 3/4 tablespoon (dry) per feeding which comes out to 40 feedings/bag, when purchasing 2 large bags (4 cups/bag) including shipping ($50 total for 2 bags shipped). So my cost will be about $20/month. Obviously, bigger bird, bigger cost.

I never made chop but I have to believe that there is less waste going with the freeze dried and the un-opened shelf life is like 25 years so you can reduce your cost by purchasing a larger order and maximizing your shipping costs.
