After reading some advice on this forum, I purchased a package of chicken wings last week. Actually, I believe they're "wingettes" with the wing cut into 2 4 or so inch pieces. I've been removing the skin and feeding them to Bailey. The first one took him awhile to get the hang of but he's had two since then and has gotten much more adept, lol.

So, my question is how often can or should I be feeding the bones? Bailey is 6 months old and 12.5 lbs. If it makes a difference, he eats about 1/2 cup of Orijen puppy twice a day.

My little dogs eat a raw diet every day. But I try to give them wings 2 times per week as they really help keep the teeth clean.

Wings are a lot of bone with very little meat though. So watch for constipation. Also look for the wings that still have the little wing tips attached. It's the cartilage in the wing tips that "flosses" the teeth and really helps. I just hack off the wings when I am roasting a chicken for dinner and keep them in a zip lock in the freezer.
