What bones are okay to feed in Raw?

Can't believe I'm asking this, since I thought I was a confirmed "non-raw" person. I'm not looking to completely change them over....just to try some raw "treats" for now. I sure don't want to choke them in the process. I have one guy that is more "cat" than any other I've ever had. He is already eating the occasional mouse, when he gets lucky. Would like to try something bone-in.

Really any small raw bone. I started mine on Cornish hens, chicken wings, and chicken feet. If you can find chicken feet, they are great treats, and super cheap. Just don't feed too much bone, or they will get constipated. I know people have had success with chicken necks, but mine are not fans.

So long as the bones aren't cooked they're safe to feed. Cooked bones splinter, which is why you should never give your dog/cat a chicken wing bone ect. Raw bones don't do that, so a raw chicken wing bone would be fine.

Most people feed chicken necks and stuff to get their bone content since the bones in necks are small and easier for cats to crunch and eat. Wings would be similar as well I'm assuming. Cats shouldn't choke on bones that size, but if you're really worried you could always go for the supplements or try grinding up larger bones and adding it into your food.

Mine love chicken necks, mice and wings - chicken necks especially. Necks and feet are cheap, so that's an easy place to start and see if they like it.

I'm probably not the person to ask... but mine eats chicken necks, backs, wings, feet, gizzards, turkey necks, duck necks, oxtails, whole rabbits (in pieces), quails, cornish hens, plus dog treats such as bully sticks and dried duck feet... he has eaten everything I've fed him lol
