|I haven't fed everything on your list myself, but I can take a crack at some of it:
Also how do you safely feed skull?
This is one thing I haven't been able to find to try. My understanding is that it's more of a recreational meal that your dog won't be able to finish. I know other Dogsters have taken a hatchet to skulls so their dogs can get at the brain matter inside - which is full of O3s. Other Dogsters should be able to fill you in here.
The same thing goes for beef feet/ hooves and lamb legs with hoves and skin on. How do you feed lamb/ beef hoves when they're attached to the leg and raw? Can Mr. Beagle eat the legs and hoves? or are the hoves inedible and should be taken away once the skin and meat is gone? or can he not eat the skin?
This is dependent on which animals feet you are feeding, and your dog. I've fed whole pork feet and my dogs eat the whole thing no problem. They are feet from smaller pigs, but they are very soft bones. I haven't found lamb with the hoof on, but I have fed lamb leg and I imagine it's very similar to pork. My issue with either item is the fat content, especially with skin on. I think it makes a nice chew on occasion, but it's not something I feed often and I would absolutely avoid either item for dogs with a sensitive digestive system, especially if they have issues like pancreatitis.
Beef feet can be huge and are harder. My experience with them is that they are more of a recreational chew. There's a ton of soft tissue that will take hours to eat, but the hock bone itself is not edible (at least for my Huskies).
How do you feed chicken feet? With the talons attached or removed?
Whole thing, no alterations required. My dogs LOVED them when I could find them. They're full of glucosamine and nice if you need a little extra bone in an meal.
