i did it many (8) years ago in a osteopetrotic transgenic mouse.  we did do 
long bones to show the   increase in the the number of osteoclasts.  the 
decalcification was slow in EDTA in the cold room.  i hand processed the 
bones and used a special low melting point wax that we got from Merk in 
i can't remember the specifics --- the paper citing is:

Soriano P, Montgomery C, Geske R and Bradley A:  Targeted disruption of the 
c-src proto-oncogene leads to osteopetrosis in mice.  Cell 64: 693-702,
