I've read that sardines is an excellent fish to feed.
good for you starting raw feed,just stick with chicken for a few weeks fish should come when hes been eating chicken for a while,remember patience lol,dont worry about him peeing less but i add acv to annies feed as it waters the urine down so it wont smell as bad and boy does concentrated urine smell lol,your doing great ,btw my dog can go 2 days without pooping!!!!,i used to worry but not anymore i may get 3 or 4 poops a week lol,karen
I will try putting some acv, dunno if he will eat the food with the smell of it in there :-(
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.
Remember, slow and steady wins the race
i put 2 tsp on her breakfast,she wont touch her water if there is acv in it,karen
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.

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.
