Smile Hating Raw Chicken?

I started with feeding the ground beef & it was great and then moved to chicken quarters which was great but took me long to cut so in efforts to save time I brought home 65 lbs of chicken breast. I cut it all into small squares & put them in zippy bags for each day. Needless to say I took up all the freezer space and now they dont like it. They ate the chicken quarters but they dont like the breast. They smell it and take a piece but never eat it. Now I have all this chicken & they wont touch it. I also donated all the dog food I had LOL so now I have to boil the chicken but I dont want to steer off the raw diet or have to cook it every night. Anyone have some tips? I have no problem with leaving the food & forcing them to eat it but if they all dislike it I am sure there is an option to making it more appealing.

Push comes to shove I will have to cook it until I am out of it and go back to beef.

Most dogs love chicken, but it isn't essential to their diets.
I would try searing t lightly in a pan, so it is still raw in the middle, and reducing the time you cook it for over time until they are eating it raw. Raw chicken doesn't have much of a smell, maybe they just don't realise it is food yet. You can also try mixing it with something they do like. For mine I use tripe as a base for things they aren't keen on. Try chopping the chicken up tiny and hiding it in some beef if that is their favourite.
it is funny how they don't like things off the bone, mine will eat sections of rabbit, pigeon, pheasant etc but if I offer them plain meat they turn their noses up.

Hmmm...

Based on my research it's best to start them off with lean skinless chicken. I've read that some dogs love coconut oil (mine do- but too rich causes liqui-poop). Try adding a drop?

If this fails, as WickedPixie said, try hiding the chicken in the ground beef.

That is a great idea! I am going to cook it lightly so it has more color, I just have so much its a shame! Mines are the same, you think its because in the wild they ate it off the bone? Interesting to research on.

Sounds like a good idea, I use it on their skin. I hate that liqui-poop so just a tad bit LOL
