    They are not Ok. Chicken bone splinters when cooked, so you may end up with some serious injuries. Could you maybe mix some raw meat in with the cooked to get them used to the taste, then start presenting with the wings from time to time raw?

    My cats won't tackle a raw chicken wing but will demolish wings from smaller birds i.e. poussin. Could you try them on something smaller. I think mine were just daunted by a chicken wing and needed some coaxing to build up to it.

    Try them with chicken necks, necks are easy to smash up with a hammer or other implement it they are still reluctant, then gradually smash less and less, or offer them cut length ways or across in 'coins'.

    Never ever feed cooked bones for the reasons given above.
