    Default minced chicken carcasses

    Probably seems a silly question, but some of you have mentioned minced chicken carcasses and I'm wondering how you mince them?
    It sounds like a great idea, but how do you do it

    I just get mine from the chicken shop. They sell it as pet mince. $2 a kilo! I don't get it very often though as it goes off quite quickly and it's too fatty for the cat. If I'm feeling organised I freeze it in portions.

    Our local butcher supplies it.

    You can buy a hand mixer from ebay or even an electric one for about $30.

    Otherwise just go and strike a deal with the local butcher or poultry shop.

    I used to work at the local poultry place and we had a greyhound breeder come in every Thursday, we would mince him up all the carasses, necks, offacl, fat, skin, feet, beaks etc and sell him 1kg bags (bout 10 or 15 of them) for about $5... the funny thing was that people where buying the same stuff over the counter in the form of chicken sausage and chicken burger patties for $5 a kilo!

    I buy mine from the local butcher/reputable pet food supply shop and freeze into 1kg portions

    Only $6 for 5kg and good quality, not like some of the others I've tried

    Hi,

    I have never seen "minced chicken carcasses" and am wondering of the value of them?

    I feed my dog raw chicken necks, and raw chicken carcasses, but prefer them whole so I know that nothing dodgy has been added. I thought a big point of having them whole was to get your dog to chew, and clean their teeth, and give them a prey/ wild experience in shredding the bones? Mincing would defeat this?

    While I buy most of my meat at a butchers, I have found that Woolies do sell six small carcasses bundled fairly cheaply in one pack.
    Bruce is a "dog walker in inner west Melbourne" & sells "Healthy Dog treats." My dog Archie approves of these things.
