Can't find poultry necks--would chicken feet be of benefit?

I'm having trouble finding turkey/chicken necks for JD. (We give them to him to help his teeth, which are bad.) They only have them here around the winter holidays when they butcher special order turkeys and there is enough demand that I can't get enough to last the year. But I see that they carry chicken feet at Walmart.

So, would chicken feet have any benefit for his teeth? Are there tendons and bone enough to keep his teeth strong, or are the bones too hard/too splintery?

I've heard that if you offer them, they should be carefully cleaned first because sometimes they're dirty, and the smell might put the cats off....also that the talons should be removed and the toes cut in half (or at least off the foot) before feeding to your cat. Anyone know how to treat the bones in the foot? Do they need to be broken up, as well?
