Try some turkey necks, then add in some wings. Turkey bones are considerably denser than chicken. Drumsticks are good also, meaty with a lot of bone.

Gotcha. I'm just a little nervous as to the turkey is much more expensive than the chicken in my area.
I only buy turkey necks by the case if I have someone to split it with me. Are there any co-ops near you or have someone who can split a case with you? The only time I've bought turkey necks in 3-packs is when I saved on whole chickens on sale - meant I could over-pay for turkey necks and heart for around $2/lb and $1.80/lb respectively. $40 for 13lbs of food...@_@

My boxer is a bit "picky" also but that's because I gave in to his brattiness. He's a "lazy" raw eater and will ALWAYS go for boneless before the bone-in stuff. Now, I have to give his bone in pieces by themselves, and he has to eat it all before getting any boneless, which he does all the time now. He's not a huge fan of turkey bone in pieces neither since the ones from the grocery store tend to be from the huge turkeys lol

If you are able to find whole birds for cheap, that aren't enhanced with a salt solution, Natalie has an AMAZING YouTube video that shows how to break down a whole turkey into pieces to feed to your dog.

What Jordann said It is extremely critical to keep an eye on your dog's poops: they are the one indicator if you're feeding just the right amounts of bone in/boneless. Too crumbly/white, more boneless. Runny or loose or anything that even looks like diarrhea: more bone.

I'm a little worried about her fur. It's falling out and she has little bald spots all over her coat. She looks speckled. I went to petco and bought some fish oil pills so I started giving them to her.

Most vets generally are anti raw, because they don't get any real nutrition in vet school. You have only been on raw for about a week or so. Give it time. Their bodies have to adjust, and sometimes they go through a sort of "detox" period. Kibble has a lot of fillers and artificial ingredients that can take time to get out of the body.
