I thought chicken necks shouldn't be given to bigger breed dogs because they can choke on them. I read that we should stay away from anything a big dog could swallow whole. I'm still learning here so any info is always appreciated!chicken necks and chicken backs are great! i feed those to my rotties every weekend. i like the necks because it is very soft
You are absolutely correct. :smile:I thought chicken necks shouldn't be given to bigger breed dogs because they can choke on them. I read that we should stay away from anything a big dog could swallow whole. I'm still learning here so any info is always appreciated!
Quite a difference between the two....I've been sitting outside for about 15 minutes now, and Brady's only made a dent in his turkey neck.Except chicken necks are very very soft, I could break one with 2 fingers, Unlike turkey necks, they are horrendously tough.
Yeah, with these I've just been letting him eat half then taking the rest away until the next feeding. I had to cut 40 pounds of chicken quarters, and bag up 60 pounds of beef....I totally had no interest in cutting up the turkey necks. :tongue:Thats why I always have to cut up the turkey necks, dogs can't even get their mouths around them and I'd be late to work if I waited for them to eat it. HAHA!!!!!
HAHAHA :biggrin:They still get a good chew workout even when cutting them into smaller pieces, You'd think they gave those turkeys steroids or something.. You know what they really look like? I can't say, but it's equine.
That reminds me, I wanted to ask about beef soup bones...I find them cheap everywhere, but are they okay to feed? I don't know what bones they are, so I'm not sure.
Also, would it be best to do a beef meal and a chicken back for same days if you're doing ground beef and/or ribs and/or tripe, because there is no bone that they can really ingest, unless they're Aspen! I mean, there's really no bone in that, so I would think that supplementing it with a heavy bone-in meal would be better. And is tripe okay to feed as an additive to meals. I mean, I don't think I'd feed it as a whole meal, but maybe, just, like, a chunk of it with one meal?
