Is it really safe to give these to a cat?.

I don't know. But I have read that if you want to feed raw chicken you have to deep freeze it first for at least 48 hours to kill possible toxoplasmosis bacteria.

I didn't know that, I'll freeze them first then. Thank you.

Missed that this was in the litter tray and thought it was going to be for people!

I've regularly fed raw chicken wings and yes, just don't feed cooked ones! Obviously because of the bones. And don't let them bring them into your bed "for a film time snack like hooman is having" hmmgrin

I suppose I can buy them frozen & defrost?.

Yes that would work. I've fed fresh ones but only when I've been able to get local stuff and I know the source

I always thought you shouldn’t give cats (or dogs) chicken bones because they splinter into sharp shards that can get stuck in mouths?

Strawberry, that's cooked bones. I was reading about this. When raw, the bones are pliable and quite soft but cooking them makes then brittle and hard and splintery.
