    Default Raw chicken necks

    I know I've read numerous posts on feeding raw chicken necks, but have never given them to any of my dogs. Yesterday I saw them packaged in one of our local supermarkets (that I don't usually shop) and I was tempted to buy a pkg.

    How often do you feed them? Any prep involved before feeding them directly out of the package?

    Thanx.

    Did they have the skins on them, I buy necks directly from the chicken factory and the skins are removed.

    I would not give them the skins too fatty.

    How old is your dog, and how big were the necks.

    Dudley usually gets a neck which is about 3 to 4 inches long every
    morning providing he has eated his meal the night before.

    He has a tendency to hold out for the necks, he loves them.

    Linda:

    My two cav girls are both 8 years. Our Lhaso is 6. Sasha (my blenheim) does have a hard time chewing and chokes alot due to laryngeal collapse she had at age 5. She's had one side of her throat permanently sutured back :cry: So I would be suspicious of little bones maybe for her...

    Myother two would love 'um I'm sure.

    You can just give them as they are. Ours are stripped of skin when I buy them in bulk, but I wouldn't think the skin would be a problem. I know raw advocates believe the skin is actually good for them; neck skin shouldn't be too fatty. It depends on what you are comfortable feeding and if the skin would add a lot of extra calories to an already fairly complete diet.

    Our necks are skinless like I mentioned, but I would not give them
    for the reason that Dudley does not need any more rump around his
    roast.
    As he also gets his other food on top of necks.
    Just watch them, Dudley devours them but has never had any problem with them.

    BTW I've seen some of the big rawfood authors describe the skin as 'natural floss' but I don't really see that!!

    Omigosh Linda that was like toooooo funny

    Actually, Sophie doesn't need any more fluff on her than she has either - she came to our house quite overweight (28 lbs.) so we just call her our little "munchkin" after the Wizard of Oz

    We both have ruby hair and fat middles - everyone thinks we're twins!!

    When i was a kid and i had my first dog (in the 50s and 60s), i remember people saying you must never give a dog chicken bones because they tend to splinter and the splinters will get stuck in their throats. What happened to that advice? Apparently, things have gone the other way now. Back in the day, you could give them other kinds of bones, but there was a big fear campaign against giving them chicken bones. What about other chicken bones, legs and thighs? Are they good for dogs too? Do dogs consume the whole neck bone?

    Ewwwwwww! I don't think I've ever seen chicken necks in my supermarkets around here. I also don't picture myself handling them and giving them to the dogs. Doesn't that make a bloody mess?? Just asking.
