Emu vs. Chicken

The quest for locally-made edibles for the dogs has yielded two recent discoveries: emu jerky and chicken jerky.

Chicken on the left. Emu on the right.

Two different Kansas brands make these treats. One uses birds raised on its own farm. The other sources American-raised birds. The packaging for each type of jerky makes similar claims about quality and the presence of healthy omegas in the product.

Emu jerky and chicken jerky both look and smell good enough for a person to eat, but we left the tasting to the dogs.

In fact, we staged a little Emu vs. Chicken Challenge.

Come back tomorrow to learn more about about these jerky treats and find out which bird came out on top, according to our pack’s taste buds.

Are you betting on Emu or Chicken? Does your dog have a favorite kind of jerky treat?

  1. Those emu bites are like doggie crack at our house!

  2. I’m betting on the emu. And kudos to you for highlighting local (to you) and US made treats. Most of the chicken snacks people feed their dogs, china sourced. Bleck!
