Help! Cheetah won't eat bone now.

Yes, it's Cheetah again, the trouble kid.

Now he is not eating bones. I cut chicken wings into 1/2 inch pieces, and he will leave that 1 or 2 pieces of bone in the plate and eat all others. He has swallowed meat double the size of the wing tip, so he is intentionally avoiding it.

He used to love quail and had no problem chewing small pieces of quail bones before, but never liked chicken wings nor necks in whole. I would like to start him on chewing bones in bigger pieces.

At first he was picky, and we gave him a commercial raw, which is grounded, for 2.5 weeks. They he had 3 days of homemade quail. He loves it the first day and had no problem chewing the bone. He then ate very little on the 2nd and 3rd day, to a point I thought the food went bad. But then he had a big meal at dinner on the 3rd day (also my last plate of quail).

Then I started him on pork. He ate the pork fine, just leaving the bones. Should I get him quail only? Any suggestions?

Can you just give quail for his bone source and feed other proteins that he likes for his muscle meat meals?

I have to try quail again. Last time I tried quail, I have cut it into 1 inch pieces and Cheetah won't eat it. I have to cut it into smaller pieces, he ate it that way before. But I do not want him to always eat small pieces.
