Ooh what kind of doggie is this chonk?
They eat a whole prey diet of quail, chickens, rats, mice, guinea pigs which I get from rodentpro.com. I also buy a variety of bone-in and boneless meats from hare-today.com to give them variety.wondering what you feed you beauties? I am in the process of transitioning to some raw..

If you are adding some raw while keeping them on their regular food you don't need to worry about ratios. If you are thinking about transitioning totally away from commercially prepared food there are two ways to go:
1. frankenprey diet where you feed a variety of meat/organs/bone either chunks or ground. With this you have to be certain you get meat/bone/organ ratio perfect as well as having to add other nutritional supplements.
2. whole prey where you don't have to worry about ratios and where you can add additional vitamins if you wish to.
I'm too lazy to worry about ratios and that's why I chose whole prey even though it took getting used to tossing bodies down on the floor for the cats to eat.
it makes me mental all of the crap they put in cat food that carnivores don't need and shouldn't have.
I hear you. It makes me mental too. And adding to the inappropriate additions, commercial food contains the 4Ds -- animals who are either dead, diseased, dying or down. There have been so many pet food recalls the last few years, I'd be very afraid to feed any commercially made product. There is still risk with raw food but it's far less than the commercial crap.
edited to add -- In addition to improved health on a raw diet, there's very little poop and it doesn't stink.
