I learned this lesson the hard way with chicken breasts. There are way too many super small bones in a chicken breast.

You would reach in with tongs at the end of the day and instead of a nice leg, you would get a stripped bone and the meat would stay behind.
I debone chcken when making a broth or stock. When the dish for which the broth is made is about to be served, I stir-fry the chicken that has been cut into half inch cubes until just lightly browned. The bones give up their collagen and goodness, as does the skin, in the broth. To manage the bones, first, freak them, and place them into a cheesecloth bag, tied together with string. When yo are ready to serve, just remove the bag, and voila, no bones in the dish.

Yesm but I think the OP was looking to serve the chicken legs as chicken legs and that would not happen after a day in a crock pot.
