Swap to Beef mince Chicken dont stack up IMO
BEEF MINCE $8.49 Kg at Aldi

The Chicken meat is fine its the fat content ...Red meat fat is always better for the Greyhound ...

There is not much difference in price in fact you tend to feed less meat Beef because of its % of fat ratio .
Aldi offer 3 grades of Beef mince .
Buy on special like i do fill the freezer at times for $7.00 a Kg Human Grade mince
Tasman meats sometimes runs Mince for $5.99 kg

Roo meat IMO is full of bacteria and no fat and the amount of preservatives in Roo will shock you ...Its full of worms .
Talk to your local Wholesaler they will sell you trim and beef and lamb hearts at a very low cost ...

Problems with raw chicken is that it can cause gastro problems. A bad case will result in a trip to the vets. Also any small bones can cause distress to the greyhound when he / she empties out. If you”ve got a good supply of chicken better to cook it and then debone it

Never de-boned chicken in my life and I feed it every day. Put it in a slow-cooker for six or so hours with some veg and the meat falls off the bones which are now soft and wont splinter, source of calcium.

Prefer half and half. When using chicken always add iron.
