Han anyone tried feeding their dogs boiling/stewing hen? Instead of chicken these are adult hens bred for laying eggs, and thus are smaller and a lot tougher to chew than your typical broiler. The only thing I am a bit worried about is the weight bearing bones, since the bones are a lot more dense on these than on broilers. They are still very small though, so I doubt there will be any problems, but I thought I would ask here.

The reason to why I want to feed these instead of chicken is that they are really cheap and quite small, so I can give my small dog a whole hen and then fast him for a day, which doesn't work with the bigger broilers.

They were a bit bigger than I thought, so I ended up having to cut it in half. He didn't eat everything, but he enjoyed what he ate.

Here are some pics of my border terrier and his hen... :)
