    DefaultChicken Bones??

    Ok, so I'm a bit confused here. Whie growing up, my parents warned us over and over to NEVER give our dogs a chicken bone because it would splinter. My fiance always gave his dog chicken bones...but I have threatened him to not give our new babies chicken bones. In reading some of the posts in this thread it appears its ok to do it? Is this only if we are feeding a raw diet? Or is it a safe thing to do?

    raw they are pretty soft. Cooked they are dangerous.

    Thanks for your replies everyone. I guess uncooked certainly is a lot softer isn't it? Still...it scares me to death to give chicken bones. Must be from all the years it was drummed into my head...lol.

    Bett...are you saying not to give even a soup bone if it has been cooked? Just trying to get this straight in my head. And if that's the case...why is that?

    In my experience cooked bones splinter and become very sharp.

    No bones that have been cooked - regardless of animal of origin. They all splinter when cooked or smoked.

    Hi Summer

    I have a dog food business that makes food for the Barf diet. I have had customers for years that only feed their labs chicken carcasses raw! And quite a few that ask for turkey wings and thighs. They all feed them raw!
