Thread: Raw Chicken Necks...good or Bad?

  1. #21

    Default

    I feed 4 chook necks to my Stafford a few times a week. I feed frozen chook necks in summer as a nice cool treat. 1 big bite & it's gone in seconds

    I don't feed my dog's chook wings tho as i'm too afraid to take the risk of sharp wing puncturing internal organs etc.

    I've also heard others say that feeding chook necks & wings to dogs lesson's the need for anal gland clean out..

    I fed raw chicken necks all the time. They love them, but for Ody, the big sook, I have to cut them up in bitesize chunks
    I introduced them to Kimba's first litter of 4 pups too at 4 weeks. I gave them 1 each, and they all went to opposite ends of their puppy pen and slowly munched them. Under strict supervision of course, but they were good and didn't inhale them.
    I then gave them a 1/4 of a chicken frame each, and they loved that to. Kept them busy for 1/2 and hour.

    Mine only do that when I feed them as treats and altogether. Mainly a 'it's mine' kind of thing. But I have never had a problem with any choking/ getting stuck in their throat, thank god and touch wood.

    I gave my Staffy girl (9 months old) half a carcass the other day. She was acting strange when she had finishes...like she was gagging....and she was....choking on one of the harder bones. Me...fingers down her throat...trying to make her throw it is...she was panicking...I was panicking because she couldn't breathe

    After the third go of getting her to throw it up......up came a 50 cent piece size bone that had lodged in her throat. I am not giving her whole carcasses again...she gets the minced ones from now on!

    I'm not a big lover of chicken necks (for dogs) after we experienced an interruption to several of our bitches cycles some years ago.

    I understand that whatever it was that was pumped into chickens years ago no longer is but I am still cautious, so they only get a couple of necks on Mondays after I've been to the free range chicken farm up the road from me.

    My pups had chicken wings, half a one anyway from 5 weeks, now a full. I have never fed necks (no reason why, I just prefer the more meat on wings) and I get minced carcass from the supermarket if I am there in time as it gets bought as soon as it comes out.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    little Nelson loves his chicken necks.. he usually has one when we are home from the beach in the mornings. he takes his time chewing the things thankfully, as they are a lot bigger than his mouth, and i give them to him whole..

    I know there has been some talk about raw chicken messing up bitches reproductive cycles etc.

    I had a chat to my vet about this yesterday, because we had Ruby examined for phantom, which she definitely has.

    The reason why chicken used to mess up their cycles (as per vet) is because of the growth hormones etc that was used in raising/farming chickens. This practice is not allowed in Australia anymore and he firmly believes...feeding chicken is safe.

    I just wanted to tell you what he had said
