Default Help - going to call butcher shops

What should I be asking for? Allie is about 2 years old and weighs about 60 lbs. Looking to order in bulk. Right now she is on ground up chicken backs.

I was wondering what I should call and ask butchers what they have? How do your conversations go? Any tips?

If you have a Walmart near by, we buy fresh chicken legs by the 10lb bag. The quality has always been good and it's really cheap (you can shop for other parts, as well). We put a 4-5 days supply in smaller freezer bags and defrost as we need them.

Ask the butcher what they do with the offal....most of it is good stuff for the pooch...organ meat, trimmings, lung, trachea, bone, gullets, stomach etc.

If the butcher is getting the carcasses already skinned and gutted, the "pickings" will be considerably less than mentioned above but still may offer an opportunity to get some great items cheap.
