I get mine from the butcher... but in large quantities... I get approx 75 for about £6.50. They will either sell me them whole or grind some or all of them. Its worth asking... if they do them but in a big batch is there anyone who would share them. A cooperative would be great but not neceassarily enough people x

I get mine from the butcher. I just need to order what I would like for the end of the week and they very kindly save things for me. I left it too late last week and the bones had gone off with the bone man which meant no lamb. Lesson learnt! :( I got about 8 carcasses for £2, lamb bones are free, chicken wings are about £1.30 per kilo (roughly) as I think he gives me the small ones. :)

How much does the average chicken carcass weigh? Would you give one chicken carcass a day for Daisy with some veggies etc?

I have just weighed my frozen block of 4 carcasses and they weighed 1100g so I guess about 275g each? I give Daisy one as a larger meal option but so far just on its own. She loves them! If I given Daisy a carcass I give her one other meal that day.

I have jusy weighed her and she is 9.5kg! She was only 6 something when we got her! Blimey! I don't know if this is normal, off to find a weight thread now :confused: :D

So you can compare - Flo is 15", quite a stocky/solid build and weighs 10.5kg. The vet has said she shouldn't go below that weight for her build.

I have the same concern as I have just got my carcasses from NI....but do I give her the whole thing? As I don't really fancy trying to break it up and is a whole carcass for the whole day or would anyone still give an NI feed?
thanks guys

When I first gave Daisy a Carcass I thought 'she will never eat all that!'. How wrong was I?! She loved it and it disappeared very quickly! They are now one of her favourite things! :) I don't break them up, just give her the whole thing and this would be for one meal. I would then give her NI or chicken wings/lamb bones as a second meal. :)

It's funny how you think they wouldn't eat stuff.

I have no qualms with Monty- but because Milly looks more like a Cavalier and with little teeth - I always worry about her- yet she manages just as well as Monty and both gobble any food down with gusto.

I suppose it's our own conditioning of years of kibble and wet food that we have forgotten how easy it is for them to ear RAW and and bones.

How much room did they take up in your freezer? I have a drawered freezer rather than a chest freezer. How many of their packs do you think you could fit in an average sized drawer? ....:)
