Maybe a beef heart if I can find it. If that doesn't work its going in the land of misfit kitchen gadgets a.k.a basement.

    yep that's the one , it worked ok today, I did get through everything, a little frustrating through the drummy's
    tomorrow's meal will include all the vitamins, enzymes and probiotics. thanks a bunch

    There's actually no bone at all in chicken necks, it's just cartilage. Usko and even Voitto just give a few bites and swallow them with ease. You can't even count necks to have much calsium.

    Skinless chicken necks are ~75% bone/cartilage. Skin-on necks are ~36%.

    For the first three weeks I'm only feeding raw chicken as the protein. I ground up 40 lbs of neck, 40 lbs of whole leg, 40 lbs of skinless boneless breasts. Froze separately. I made a smoothie in a food processor, 1 bag frozen green beans, 1 cored apple with skin on, 1 handful of fresh parsley and a bit of water to make pour-able. I add Enzymes and Probiotics . You can do this either before you freeze the smoothie into cubes or at each meal. I feed one time a day because I'm working out of the home. At dinner time they'll each get 2% of their body weight. Jack is a 100 lb American bully , he gets 2 lb of raw chicken (1/2 lb. breast meat and 1-3/4 lb. of raw chicken leg) 2 smoothie ice cubes 1 dose of Enzymes and 1 dose of Probiotics. Flax seed oil and Regenex for joints. Next week I plan on adding more breast meat % and the ground necks continuing with the legs also, just more of a mixture of muscle.
    As time goes on I will add different protein to their diet, but first things first and establishing the change to raw.

    Jack is the heaviest and Scrimps is the lightest at 50 lbs. So I adjust the meal according to their weight. hope this helps.

    Indeed I have, thank goodness for the 20 paws sake. I must tell you how happy we are with raw feeding, the only drawback for me is it's a lot of work grinding the legs. But the results are just so worth it. I'm hoping we've seen our last antibiotic. The research I've done has paid off not just for me but I'm able to share from some exp.
    I will never forget the lesson learned on store bought treats. just say no thank you Lisa!!!
