I have a question about chicken feet! I've fed Murph RMB's for quite a few years now but I've never ran across chicken feet in stores until the other day. I gave him one the other night and I realized when he got to the bone that it seems really rough and splintery. Is this perfectly safe for him? I know he wont fully chew the bone up into little pieces but he does chew it (so that makes me a bit nervous). Another thing is the nails, do you cut them off or keep them? confusedbig laugh

this is a video of my dog eating a chicken foot whole
it took her a while to finish it
but that's my experience and we had no problem with it. unless your chicken feet were somehow different than mine.

Trying to get your video to work but it wont load and then it says its 1 second long. Youtube is acting up, I tried it on different browsers too. Cookie is adorable though, I watched some of your other videos big grin

Chicken feet have bone?
Ours were always rubbery-- cartridge.
Did you actually feel it or were you going by looks ? On the inside there is stringy stuff (tendons? iunno.) that I guess could look like splintery stuff.

Btw I would clip off the toe nails. When Nare eats them the toenails don't digest and look like little slug things in his poop.. Scared me to death the first few times.

I'm pretty sure that it has bones, you can hear them cracking and its really strong. I'll clip the nails, I can't stand seeing them anyways lol!

When we feed our dog chicken feet, she just gobbles them up much like Cookie does in the video.

Murphy, although I don't like seeing the nails on the chicken feet, I don't remove them. And, I don't think there are bones on that part of the chicken. I think the appropriate term is cartilage. big grin

Sorry about that! it did that to me too, but after I tried again, it seems to be working.

Well you can def. just search "Cookie eats a chicken paw" and find it right there on youtube. You can skip to the part when she really starts to chew the bone up. All her raw feeding vids were always her first time with something so they are all long....

In addition to chicken feet, I regularly feed whole chickens, quail, rabbit, ect. with all the nails/claws still attached and have never had a problem.
