But you can equate the size of the dog. Have you ever had a puppy choke on a chicken neck? If not then I'd say you were lucky, and you haven't had the scares I have. Perhaps they just eat different, IDK. My 60 pit mix could eat a chicken neck because he was a very careful chewer, but if you have a gulper I would not recommend them no matter the size of the dog. Duck necks are an even better option.
