    Default Turkey Carcass?

    My butcher kindly gave me 3 big raw ones for Mulli today (as I always buy her meat there) and I took them with a big thanks but I'm unsure if they are okay to give to her? Any opinions? She is fine with chicken carcass, wings, necks etc but never had turkey.....and they look so much bigger and 'harder' than the chicken ones.

    Sorry if it's a stupid Q, but I'd rather be safe than sorry!

    Thanks in advance

    I give my lot frozen chicken frames. Chop them into a size you're happy with & freeze. It's just another bird.

    Cheers, thanks for that, I'll chop em down a bit and keep an eye on her anyways - be nice for her to have a turkey chrissy lunch. Although come to think of it we aren't even having turkey lol

    *chuckle* My dogs eat better than what we do most of the time. I'm a big fan of freezing the carcasses. They really have to chew on them which cleans their teeth, especially those back ones & in this hot weather, it's a nice cool snack.

    Iv read Turkey isnt recommended as everyday food due to its high fat content but I do give it to Leo on occassion. I would cut them down and give it to her as 1/2 her meal and whatever she usually eats as the other 1/2 so she doesnt get a tummy upset (As to much fat in one go will most likey give her the runs )

    If it's just the frame though, perhaps there's not much flesh or fat on it like the chicken frames I get.

    Really? The chicken frames i get have pretty much teh whole skin/body fat left on them, quote often i cut huge chunks of skin and fat off them and chuck before feeding otherwise it gets a bit runny coming out the other end

    Isn't that interesting. The ones I get are just the frame with the membrane holding the whole thing together. I suppose each poultry shop does it a different way then.

    They are pretty substantial frames, quite fleshy and a fair bit of skin hanging on em too, so I will clean them up a bit. Half a meal sounds good too, and she can have half her regular dinner that night. My OH thinks I'm nuts wanting to give her a turkey lunch for Christmas, but it will go so nicely with the nice new ceramic bowl she's getting for a present lol
