hmingtea - since you are in India, I don't know what size of chickens you can get, but if you can younger chickens, they will have smaller, easier bones. We call them cornish hens here. I think in the UK they are called poussin (?). But if you can get chicks or very young chickens, rather than full grown ones - the bones will be easier. If you are getting whole chickens, save the internal organs for later. Just put them in the freezer. Organs come last after fully transitioned to chicken and doing well on it. Yes, the poops will be less frequent. Their is little waste when fed a raw meat diet. It is highly digestible.

here chickens are about 4lbs whole... i gave Quoki some bones last night like neck bone, she can crack em really nice. And for the organ part i think i will get a goat organ rather thn chicken coz i wont be able to get that much chicken organ from a butcher, hope it wont be a problem.

Goat organs (and meat) will be GREAT. Introduce slowly, over time, as you want her doing fine on chicken only before moving to other meats. You will do organs last and they are only 10% of the diet, with 5% of that being liver. Sounds like you are doing an awesome job!

Luckily ive found a place where i can get beef and its cheaper than goat and chicken. If i go for goat and beef, wont the bone be too hard for a chi to crunch 'em?

Some goat ribs would be OK, they can gnaw on the ends of the bones where there is cartilage and consume plenty of bone that way. You can fill in with bone-in chicken also and then feed meat meals between.

Yay!! That is great to hear. I sure wish I could get beef cheaper than chicken or goat! I'm sure the conversion rates make some difference, but where I'm at, beef is usually about $2.50/lb whereas we can often find chicken for .69/lb. Keep up the great work! =D
