Why nosy give her the bone whole. you can start with the wing tips then work her up to the center section by mashing it with a hammer until her jaws gain strength.

When I was first researching feeding raw, I remember reading that 2.5 ounces of raw meaty bones three times a week would be enough bone. So if you gave Sassy 2.5 oz. of chicken neck or wing that often it should be a good amount. If she does not want to chew on them at first, smash them with a hammer so they are in smaller pieces and she might get the idea.

My Sunny had a broken upper canine tooth we got removed about 2 weeks ago, and I think that may be why he didn't want to chew on bones. When he is fully healed and the stitches dissolved I am going to try him again. But for the time being I am doing eggshells with him. I read that a teaspoon 3 times a week would be good for that, but I cleaned out an empty spice container and put the ground up eggshells in there and I just sprinkle some on his food at every meal, as if it were salt. So far he is not having any problems with his stools being too loose and the vet said that amount should be sufficient for bone health.

Great, so she'll be all set! I've heard a lot of people say that most kittens really take to the bone, especially since you've fed her the raw diet all along.
