Does anyone know how much calcium, phosphorous and other nutrients are in raw chicken bones? I am trying to input weekly amounts of food into the nutritiondata website. I can calculate the amount of bone but not the vitamins and minerals that are in it. If I use the USDA National Nutrient Database, it gives the amounts without bone. Any sources or suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

Here's the full link to the page that has info on the chicken item.. As dogster adds spaces on links which is dumb and annoying. :
I think the info is on bone in chicken with meat and bone not just the bone, but it's a start. does show calcium and phosphorous stuff.

Monica Segal has some nutrient information, including calc./phos., for a few different bone-in cuts in her books. They would be for the entire cut.

I can't believe it's so difficult to find this information. Nonetheless, the barfworld site ended up being the best source. Thank you all.
