May depend on the type of dog too - not really sure.

We're on our third generation of kelpy x (i.e. they're around 75% kelpy) and we regularly feed them raw and cooked bones from chickens and turkeys (and everything else we eat). The only exception is fish.

Only time we ever had a problem was once with a cooked lamb chop bone. It didn't splinter, she just got the whole thing stuck at the top of her throat, which was easily pulled out. Over 20 years, that's a pretty low risk compared to snakes, roads and rat baits.



I second this...Jessy in my pic on is a red cloud kelpie cross dingo...she loves chicken...bones and all and Kangaroo...cooked or raw doesn't matter to her...but drools for it when it is cooking. For me to give here a bird raw or cooked is a special treat they absolutely love.

Geeze I really would love to try growing quails and Rabbit. I have cooked rabbit...and never would give Jessy cooked rabbit bones...but defently raw rabbit......Might have to start thinking up a quail and rabbit coop :flower:

I'm planning bunnies when I finally get my system sorted, I have two pet does that are just about right for breeding now.
Quail's an idea I had never thought of, chooks yes but we can't have roosters here. Apparently big proud cocks piss off the neighbours :twisted:
I'm trying to think up a low maintenance pen for the bunnies. As they breed "like rabbits" :oops: they do need segregated quarters, from a very early age.
ease of feeding and cleaning is a big issue for me.

Cool chicken plucker:

Feeder I used for young community rabbit cage.
http://www.tractorsupply.com/livestock/ ... bs-2167141.
My community rabbit cage was just a quail cage with rabbits in it :lol:
Anyway the wire cage part was 3' deep x 4' long x 2' high. It had a hutch attached that was 3' deep x 4' wide x 2' high. It had a removeable metal poop tray under the wire floor of the hutch and a light socket mounted in the ceiling. No automation just left it on all winter. It also had 4 of the water nipples. I just filled the large poulty feeder about once a week and it was good to go. The young rabbits didn't show any breeding tendencys and I would just toss both sexes in there and the bolters came out first. Had 42 bunnys in there at once. It is possible a runt can get by this method and become pregnant. But I only gutted one that way in several years.

Did I mention for breeders I only had 1 buck and 4 does!
Also I left the poop tray out in the warmer months. Made wheelbarrow loads of garden compost. Rabbit poop isn't that hot and you can add without composting.

Nice tip.
As for rabbits, yeah, I don't want too many does, I just need a buck atm, but I was referring to the little ones breeding before eating. Or do you neuter them? Or do you just eat em too quick?

I am growing out six bantum chickens that I incubated in May. They are almost ready to harvest, but I am still finishing off the 26 pound turkey. Bantums are easy to keep, they are not noisy, do not eat a lot nor do they fly well. They lay lots of fertile eggs but because it is so dry here I need incubate with humidity control to reliabley sustain a flock. They are like eating squab, baked whole one is enough of a meal for most folks.
Turkeys are more fun to raise. They sing , puff up and strut around; the hens squat at your feet which means they want to mate. The eggs are big and tasty. They are most tender in four months as soon as full sized. 26 pounds is lots of meat.


Don't bantom roosters crow?

For me can have up to seven chooks no problems ,, NIL roosters ,, I mean be fair to your neighbours.

No neutering was just too young. They would grow 2/3 full size in 7-9 weeks.
That was way more rabbits than I could eat. I was actually selling lots of rabbits. 7-9 weeks Knock em in the head and freeze them. I was able to get more stuff as barter at work with the rabbits than if I would have gotten cash which I would get also. Two of the Does belonged to the Girls so they were ensured never to get killed and lived about 5 years. The girls also claimed the money from "their rabbits" and at $7 to $10 each made for an occasional trip to the mall.

Gee - thanks for the legal advice Chappo. I'm well aware of what is and isn't a requirement of council. I too am unable to keep roosters - can have up to 20 chooks. Was just interested in the comment about the bantoms being quiet and wondered whether it extended to the roosters.

Yes, although green houses and GB media come to mind, or was it glass houses and stones?
