Feeding chicken frames

Post by Lottiegirl on Mon Jul 31 2017, 21:23

Hi there,

I was given a bag of chicken frames and was wondering if these are safe to feed Sadie since they are made up of lots of small bones. She is 7 months and weighs just under 13kgs.
If these are fine to feed her how much per day should I feed? Would a quarter or a half of a chicken frame be enough of her daily bone content? The chicken frames weigh roughly about 300g each.

Thank you

They should be ok but I would feed them gradually to start off with, and only when you are around.

I personally don't feed chicken bones, partly because we keep chickens as pets and partly because Nola tends to swallow larger bits that then reappear after copious heaving noises during the night! I think for many people the rule of thumb tends to be bigger bones for bigger dogs.

Having said that, there are plenty of people who feed chicken carcasses with no issue at all.

i think it also depends on how old the carcasses are. if they are totally fresh they should be fine, but the older a carcass is, the more brittle the bones become!

Avian bones are much lighter than other bones so i do think they splinter and whatnot easier, especially the smaller bones. If im honest i would not be giving a pup these, as they might get a bit too friendly with it, but the leg with all the other small bones taken out might be okay.

I was so nervous giving Gus raw chicken wings, but he absolutely loved them. The food supplier we use sell whole chickens so it should be fine to feed the bones you have.
