Does anyone know or care to guesstimate what the percentage of bone is in your typical chicken back and quarter?

So is feeding chicken backs in the morning and leg quarters in the evening a good balance of RMBs and muscle meat? Also, there is usually some organs contained within the backs - if you feed backs every morning do you still need additional organ meat during the week?

What is the % in turkey necks? (meat to bone)

I do rotate chicken backs with turkey necks at times.

I try not to worry too much about % bone, I know my dogs...if they don't get enough bone, there is proof in the pudding, so to speak. ;)

I like to add necks/backs once a day or every other day to keep things firm. :)

I would say it's a bit bone heavy, but if stools are looking good, then nothing to worry about.

Backs and quarters sometimes have some organs attached, I feed quarters almost every morning (I feed twice a day) but I do still add organs daily to the diet.
