    Usually a few hours between swallowing and chucking - which makes it even more fun.

    Eg Chicken wing for breakfast, chuck up for dinner, or Bone for lunch and 2am chuck up in bed or loungeroom.

    If the bits are bigger than a 5cent piece or have sharp edges they come back to haunt us (goes for raw beef bones as well as chicken)

    I like them, they're yummy.

    Seriously, I would feed them to Keeda and will be when we get to live together again. I'll just make sure to watch her as she eats, just in case.

    Feed them to the rescue pups from about the age of 6 weeks! Really funny to see them drag a neck around that is almost as big as they are lol.

    In the documentation we give to all our new parents (for any age) we suggest a breakfast that includes chicken necks daily for the rest of their lives, this will keep their teeth in perfect order. Like an apple a day keeps the Dr away, or in this case a neck a day

    Some one was telling me that too many chicken necks can be bad for puppy. My boy goes mad for chicken necks and I've been giving him one every morning for breakie but was told that I should only be giving them to him 2 or 3 times a week because of the fat content.

    I'm confused

    Does she woof down all her food or just the wings? If it is just the wings follow DA's advice and hlod the wing, if your not going to get bitten! lol or you could give her something a bit bigger that she cant fit in her mouth all at once. This will force her to chew at it.
    If it is all food teach her that she can eat slowly by only giving her little amounts of her food, bickies or meat etc., and not giving her the next bit until she has eated the first. Do this calmy and slowly and she will get into the rythm of eating slower. This does not mean that you have to feed her more though lol

    Jen, I think it depends on a few things, and am wondering why you were told that.

    Is your dog overweight? One chicken neck for brekkie isn't much, so there hsould be no problem with giving him one each day.

    If I need to put more weight on an underweight dog, then yeah, I'll give them a bit more chicken each day and other organs for muscle meat.

    It also depends on what else you are feeding him.

    Same method here. I start small & gradually increase the size. All 3 dogs are now on carcasses. I give them frozen, so they have to chow down on them & not just "hoover" them. Scout (cat) gets a couple of wing tips every weekend to clean his fangs.

    He's on Advance puppy kibbles atm (still not sure if these are the best kibbles to buy, everyone tells me different things) - half a cup morning and night plus the neck in the morning - keeps him distracted when I put him outside to go to work.

    According to the puppy school trainer he's right in the middle of the healthy weight range. He's fairly active during the day (from the evidence I see in the back yard when I get home in the evening!) and we have 20 min walk/run most nights.
