Welcome! With her being so little, you may want to look for Cornish hens (whole bird). Guinea pigs and rabbits are other options. I raise rabbits; while there is a learning curve (as with anything), its not too bad.
Chicken necks should be a good bone source for Zoey. Bone tends to be digested better than shells (though they can be fed). The chicken feet are also good to feed. You can pair the feet with something boneless, like breast. Once she is handling that well, you'll have other meats/cuts to try.

Welcome! Great to have you! Yes, in the beginning it is normal for some vomiting until their body learns to adjust to digesting bone.
For such a small dog, Cornish hens and chicken necks are good, as are even frog legs and chicken feet for bone. The bone you are feeding provides enough needed calcium. You CAN give egg shells, but you would really need to put them through a blender or food processor for them to be digestable. Whole shells tend to come out the same way they went in. Whole bone is really the best source of calcium.
