    You can use any kind of liver. For the hard treats what I do is boil the liver with some cloves of garlic until the liver has gone a sort of grey colour, I then cut it into small pieces, shove it in the oven on a low temperature and cook it till it goes nearly black, it keeps for ages made like this.

    I use chicken livers and bake them in the oven for hours until they are solid. They go squishy first then harden off.

    Never thought to boil it first, that's a brilliant idea.

    It cuts down the time it has to be in the oven and it's easier to cut when it's cooked rather than raw. I use scissors to cut it up after it's been boiled it's easier and quicker than using a knife.

    I ate liver once, lets just say never again. :yikes:

    I must try boiling it and sticking it in the oven, I usually just fry it for him. Would you cook kidney in the same way?
    I presume liver or kidney would be ok to feed raw either?
