Has any ever fed dehydrated ( dried) chicken feet? I picked up a bag. I have a 13 week old puppy. I got them for the glucosmine content. Not sure if her stomach can handle the bones yet, or if she should even eat them because they are dried at all.

I feed them a few times a week. I want to try dehydrating some at home in the future.

They take awhile to dehydrate. I now trim the nails....not because I feel the need but because they freak my customers out. Gus eats his whole, nails and all.

How long to dehydrate roughly?

Ugh chicken feed.... my father actually eats those in his chicken soup... it's disgusting, but he loves them.

I tried clipping off the toe nails and feeding it to lucy and she wanted no part of it. I really don't blame her though.
Omg gross. Now that I have own chickens, I see what they walk around in and there is no way because I can't help think that chicken poop must be embedded in their feet. No way I could eat that. Dogs love gross things though :)

All 4 of ours ate them up last night and came looking for more. Ollie wanted out for a pt break earlier than normal (4am), but no problems otherwise.

When I had Varik in his puppy class, as a graduation present the instructor gave each puppy a little gift bag of baked chicken feet. She may have sprinkled them with something, I can't remember. It made them crunchy treats. Varik LOVED them. I just feed them raw when I can find them, but haven't been able to find them in a lonnnng time here locally.

There is a chicken factory just round the corner here from the office... I wonder if they will give me chicken feet for a cheaper rate... I don't think I've ever seen them in the shops here.

Supermarket. Or better, an "ethnic" market. They are completely raw, in the meat section with the other human-grade meats.
I purchase at an Asian Market. They are fresh, clean for human consumption. I then freeze them and feed two a day. You can monitor how much is too much, if their stool is white and chalky, you are feeding to much bone and just cut back the amount you feed. I feed duck and chicken feet two a day for 65 lb dogs
