It's certainly worth a try!
Since Cornish is much smaller, which pieces would you suggest?
Just thinking out loud (always dangerous ) but if you got whole ones (do they come any other way?) you could break them down into parts.

Alright, I'll give it a try!
What advice do you have on my dog's poop? He's a bit constipated, so I would figure give less bone, but his poop is also a little too soft - so more bone. What should I do?
Just now, his poop is no longer constipated but it's way too soft. He didn't have bone today, but had two chicken necks yesterday. I was contemplating duck foot for dinner tonight, or what do you suggest?

So, Zeus enjoyed his first whole prey: Cornish. He decided to rip off both of the wings initially, got a little too excited with it all. Nonetheless, he enjoyed himself. Now, I'm left with what I guess you would call the "frame"? Is that right? I mean can he just go on and have at it or are there any concerns?
Hey guys! So far, everything has been going well with the raw feeding. However, I just introduced coconut oil into his diet and today after breakfast (duck foot, boneless chicken thigh, and some coconut oil), he went outside and had cannon butt. This is actually like the first pure cannon butt he has had since starting raw. Could such a straight liquidy poo be caused by something as small as coconut oil, or is it potentially something else? Also, what should I give him for dinner tonight to help this.
** The poo is also light in colour if that makes a difference.
Thanks! Alright, so he was doing well until I introduced beef heart, which gave him cannon butt. I took that away, but now he's still having this liquid poo after breakfast. It's been like 5 days since the beef heart. He will have an acceptable poo, then after breakfast, disaster. Today for breakfast he only had chicken neck, chicken gizzard and some coco oil. What should I feed him to get him back to where he should be? Simply more bone?
**Mind you, it may be understandable that he is still having off-on cannon butt since aside from the beef heart, I haven't taken anything away from his diet. Not sure what to do, since the other proteins in his diet he has been eating without any issue.
I also have a small dog 10 lb papillon who used to gulp his kibble, now when he eats a bony meal i hold it at one end and let him chew the other, I can control how much he chews off at once and when I get to the end if the piece is small and I'm worried about him just swallowing it I just don't give it to him.
If there's a will, there's a way with this boy. He will certainly try to swallow everything, if he can!
So, I'm still working on introducing him into beef hearts. Every time I mix it into his meal, he has cannon butt, every time. Does that mean I'm still introducing too much at a time? Should I just start with like a pinch and keep moving up? I put like .2oz and he still had an upset...
Another thing: I give him roughly 1tsp of ground salmon (boneless) with dinner every day. Is that safe to do so? He hasn't shown any problems, just knowing it's a rich protein, I just want to make sure it's safe.
