Yes. Started on turkey necks and chicken thighs/marylands at 3.5 - 4 weeks of age. to 'play' with
Little vultures catch on fast and have the bones stripped bare after getting them for a day or two.
By 6 - 8 weeks they are eating chicken frames, thighs, marylands and turkey necks bones and all without issue.
I do the same with my pups
same here....started our 3 wk old sheppies on soft lamb ribs, it's so funny watching babies (with no teeth) suck & gum meaty bones to death.........
my husband was watching them one day & commented on "what a slow but cute way it would to be suck/gummed to death by a pack of toothless puppies"
By 6-8wks of age, the pups were very capably devouring 1/2 a chicken carcess each
