Chicken Bones

Are chicken bones bad to give in a RAW diet? I heard they splinter bad? Would they be ok if grinded

please read the entire BARF 101 sticky.

raw bones are soft, cooked bones are the ones that splinter. do NOT feed cooked bones. raw chicken bones are fine to feed

They're fine as long as they're raw. They'll only splinter if you cook them. You can soak the raw bones in Apple Cider Vinegar so they will become rubbery if you're still afraid of them splintering.

i wasnt afraid of them splitting, just wanted to make 100% sure. Cause i just cut small chickens up in sections and give them to her.

And I AM reading the Barf thread, little by little. Just wanted to know no instead of searching 100 pages for the answer.

A cautionary note. My dog Xanny is a wicked gulper and chomper. When I gave her chicken thighs, she would break the bone in half, and then swallow the halves, which were long and sharp ended. If I had continued to feed her raw, I would have used a bone hammer. She would also splinter beef marrow bones.

As been said, they're safe.

Some of mine eat like that. One crack and down the hatch.
