Actually, the densest and most difficult to digest part of a chicken is the wings (that and the near total absence of meat are why they're the least useful bits of a chicken). Legs are much less dense and hence easier. They're far more meaty too. Other than as part of a whole chicken, I wouldn't ever bother feeding wings to a dog - unless I wanted them for teaching the dog to chew, of course (it's easy to hang onto an end of a wing without getting your fingers munched). They're little more than skin and bone (quite literally).
Thank you for explaining that. I guess I was confused! LOL! I will look to see if I can find a bag of drumsticks.
