I bought 1.5lbs of chicken drumsticks and about 4lbs of chicken leg quarters a couple weeks ago and then got persuaded by my local raw feed store to get 6lbs of ground chicken necks/backs/gizzard/heart/liver - it was a slab, so I had to thaw enough to cut it up into daily portions. I also bought 3lbs of turkey necks and 1 lb of ground chicken hearts. I also have a whole frozen chicken that my mom gave me that she bought 2 years ago and was forgotten in the bottom of the freezer - $0.77/lb!
So....I have all this stocked up in my freezer and I can't decide what I should start out with first. Any advice? The sales rep at the raw feed store said to start 1st week on the ground food to transition her into raw and then alternated turkey neck, drumstick and then leg quarter for the next 3 meals after I use all the ground chicken. I am thinking that's too many different parts. He also told me to toss in an ounce of chicken heart per meal, but I've read enough on the forum to know better...that is being saved until next month!
Abby is currently on Orijen kibble so I am not too concerned about a rough transition, but I definitely don't have any RMBs with high bone content unless I cut off the meat from the drumsticks and give her just the bone from that...can't find chicken backs!
Also, forgive my newbie-ness...are poultry necks considered RMBs or mainly bone content? Can they be fed in a single meal and not be followed up with more muscle meat at the next meal? A list would be greatly appreciated.
