Subject: I've never given bones 'on purpose', but I have been ...
In reply to: Connie and Rain 's message, "Re: While many a flyer does live well into its teens, I'd say that ..." on 22:05:29 06/23/07 Sat

(I've never given bones 'on purpose', but I have been ...) guilty of shamelessly poor housekeeping, and leaving a plate with a chicken leg bone in the den, on a tray, to find it 'MIA' in the morning. I've turned such up, hidden carefully in either a nest box or a shelf corner, on 'den cleaning day', with evidence of gnawing, and no evidence of harm to anyone. I'm pretty sure, although not positive, that Joan gives Chuck and Mishi the occasional bone. And in the natural setting, you can be sure a flyer will get the occasional bird bone (although not often roasted, of course ...). I would thing that as it is with dogs, beef bones might actually be 'safer' for fliers ... less chance of splintering. But, that said, many a dog safely eats chicken bones. It's less likely that a flier might 'bolt' a bone splinter, than a dog ... by their very nature, flyers are gnawers, not 'bolters', of food. I do always give my dog the grizzle 'knuckles' off chicken bones, and would think such pretty safe, for flyers, too.
