    I've read that sardines is an excellent fish to feed.

    8 am - 8 oz of chicken gizzards with crushed egg

    Ate only half of it. Maybe the gizzards were foreign to him...lol

    12pm - another 8 oz of gizzards, finished everything

    4 pm - 7 oz chicken breast, no bone

    8 pm - 7 oz chicken breast with bone

    Now today he pooped few times, very very little - but very very gooey and kinda more liquidy. Light brown, like very light. Tonight he went again - a bit slimy, on the soft side, stank very weird and it was almost black.

    Me thinks more bone needed for Zeus...hubby is suppose to cut the grass tomorrow and I cant even scoop up this kind of poop :-(

    A little more bone is good but keep in mind that the egg can cause it to be runny as well. You can also expect it to be a bit yellowish from the chicken/hens. Maybe cut the egg and add another meal that has bone. Maybe a thigh or leg quarter. I would stick with strait chicken. In about two weeks, add something new a bite at a time. I wouldn't worry if he doesn't eat all that you offer. He will know what he needs. Just wait, he will want to eat MORE soon enough! lol. I, too, think 4X's a day is a good feeding schedule for his age. Sounds to me like you are doing GREAT!!!!!!!! I am proud of you lol. I add the acv to their water instead of their food. Just a bit.

    I was trying to figure out for the longest time what acv is. lol. I put a tablespoon of it in Stig's water every morning. It's a natural mosquito repellent.

    Yeah! I sometimes use 1/4 acv to 3/4 water shake it in a spray bottle and spray my kids with it. They smell bad but it's just as bad as bug spray. LOL. But, I only do that if I run out of Skintastic.

    yeah....it could have been the egg. I wont give that anymore and see what happens. His mornings poo was almost a pile (wth?), little firmer but still on the soft side. I liked the 4 meals yesterday, he actually finishes his food. The only thought I have is - is it the same bloat risk as with kibble about the walk after/prior to eating?


    Btw, I went to another so called butcher in the area....wth, they dont have REAL butchers anymore? He had no chicken feet, no animal parts - he had kidneys, livers, hearts....no whole oxtails...he doesnt even butcher a whole animal there :-( I will have to drive to the D-town and go to the real meat market.
