Turkey necks

Okay, I got a couple frozen turkey necks for my dogs. Do I give them frozen or do I thaw them?

Thaw. Turkey necks are heavy with bone, so you shouldn't feed just that, add some ground and cut the neck in 1/2 or 1/3(if it's a tom neck). One neck may weigh a pound so I usually cut them. They are a favorite rmb for my dogs.

Thaw, and I don't feed the whole thing in one meal due to the high bone content, as Jane said I also break mine in half and feed one half at a meal, the rest muscle meat and organ.

Hans could enjoy his frozen. If you thaw, don't do it in the microwave.

Great! A little hatchet is good to have, too.

I feed turkey necks to Gus regularly, like others I usually cut in half.

I have feed frozen and thawed, makes no difference to him and have had no issues.

Is it true they should be thawed because frozen are too brittle? I thought I read that somewhere..
