I have made 2 batches of bone broth. All the liquid is frozen into cubes and then added as required both before and after training to hydrate my dogs. The bones in the chicken after cooking are just mush and can be fed directly to your dogs with the chicken meat. So a great way to fully utilise the chicken carcasses as fuel for your athletes.
