Default Hows About A Raw Eating Thread?

We had the cute bully stick thread, and the countless threads of our babies looking adorable. Why don't we depict them as the beasts they really are?

Post your raw eating pictures! Freezer pictures welcome as well!

First off here is my newly stocked and semi bagged up freezer! (No its not ALL for the Chis! Feeding a Great Dane and a Bull Terrier as well.)

Defrosting in the fridge, 2 beef hunks, 40lb chicken necks, tripe, and tomorrow's meals.

And now the beastly images!

Phoebe vs Chicken Neck



Phoebe vs Pork Rib



Schroeder vs Pork Rib

Yikes I think the rib is winning..!


Oh wait. He's got it




And (hope you don't mind) Mr. Halpert

Whole chicken



Pork Shoulder

Wow! That's what I call a nicely stocked freezer. I absolutely love the beastly pics! What a great thread.

Woo hoo! Hubby even enjoyed looking at those pics...yep he's a proud raw feeder.

Here are a few of our crew... I'll have to get a freezer pic at some point. That was pretty interesting!





The weather was nice enough the other day for our first outside raw feed - yay! Can't wait to get "cleaner" green grass but the pups didn't seem to mind the extra dried grass. LOL


Ribs (and Marley a chicken neck since he's having crunching issues...)


And this one cracks me up. Mari has had a problem adjust to beef. The first 4 meals she vomited up immediately & then wouldn't touch beef at ALL. So I've been slowly mixing in ground beef & organ with ground whole chicken. In this pic...she was picking out the chicken & spitting the beef out onto the floor. Silly girl!

OH yes! This thread is awesome!!!

Brody sitting by a beef heart and kidney that one of David's co-workers gave us when they bought a side of beef ....



Checking out our order from rodentpro.com. We wanted to try whole prey so I bought whole frozen rabbits and quail! These are the quail. Whole and complete with feathers and all organs. They arrived frozen hard as a brick. It took 2 days to thaw them out!



"I eats everything! Evens the antlers!" LOL



Raw chicken wing, the middle portion. Don't really feed these much anymore as they are pretty bone heavy, but they are great when you are starting out!



Super yummy!!!

Quinn - your pups look sooooooooo great! Love that shine on Halperts head! They look awesome. Your freezer puts mine to shame. I only have a large drawer full. Now I am seriously jealous. LOL.

Heather - those pics made my night! I love the one of Mari picking out the beef! That is hilarious! Your crew looks like they are having a great time. Love it!

Heather - those pics are great! You're lucky your pups can all eat so nicely together. Some times I want to ring my guys necks. Schroeder would probably eat nicely (maybe try to steal though!) but Phoebe is INSANE about food. Even things she doesn't want to eat she guards (she is still refusing to touch beef and venison UGH). I feed crated
Mari is tooo cute! And I love the 1st one of Marley.

Tracy - Haha that heart is as big as him! I really hope Phoebe will at least eat heart. She's becoming such a pain! Has Brody eaten the rabbit and quail yet? I almost wanted to try chicks and maybe mice for my guys but I don't know if I could brave it... When they have fur and faces it makes me sad haha. I'm pretty sure Schroeder would eat it though, he eats anything.
The chis only have a drawer full too! Its mostly for Halpert.
The freezer is as follows: top shelf - things needing to be bagged, next 2 shelfs (or any gallon bags i think there are some in the door) - Halpert's bagged food (thats about 4 weeks worth for him 4+lbs per day on average. Need to buy some pork and bag a bit more beef for him though.) Bottom drawer is the Chis cut up stuff (beef, chicken thighs, necks, venison). The door is for "my" Bull Terrier. And my mother and her chihuahua are moving back into the building so his stuff will need to go in there as well.
And then the fridge is all more stuff I need to cut and bag. Ahhh.
I bought like 230lbs of food a week ago and I'm still defrosting and bagging! I will have more than a months worth of certain things though so thats good.

YAY FOR RAW! Maybe we should start a raw poop thread too

Yes, he's eaten both the rabbit and quail. Although he would NOT eat them whole. I had to dress them out myself which was NOT pleasant. I wouldn't do it again. It bugged me more than I thought it would. And the shipping made it pretty expensive. It was a LOT of work to dress them out and not very much meat! He is CRAZY about rabbit ears though and obsessed with them. After he ate the ones we had here, the fresh ones, I have had to continue to buy him dehydrated ones. They are one of his favorite treats!

He loves beef heart. I thaw it out, then cut it up into chunks and freeze. Then I just take out one portion at a time.

He used to be MR PICKY, but he's gotten so much better on raw. I'm sure the variety has a lot to do with it. I wouldn't want to eat a bowl of Total cereal twice a day for the rest of my life either!! LOL!

Oh - and I ordered some bison that should be here this week. There's a big bison farm a couple hours from here with all organic, grass fed bison. I made an order for us (mostly burger, it's expensive) but they also had tongue, testicles, heart, and liver so I ordered those for Brody. I need to get him his own freezer. HA!

Yeah that doesn't sound so fun! Maybe if I could split an order or just buy one off someone sometime I'll try, I could prob just give it to Halpert if the wee ones wouldn't eat it. But it would certainly be too expensive to do a lot.
And I've never tried rabbit ears. Where do you get yours from?

And you should get a small freezer! Something about doing a big order and having a stocked freezer feels so good!
