Default Feeding my 6week GSD enough? & mushy stool.

I feed my 6week pup 3/4 BB chicken & brown rice large puppy twice daily once at 5am and again at 5:30-6pm is this enough food for him? And his stool is mushy, could it be because of the BB I'm feeding him? Thank you for y'all's time.Feeding my 6week GSD enough? & mushy stool.-imageuploadedbypg-free1394396247.751994.jpg

It could be from the food. Some foods just react bad to some dogs. Especially one that young. But I would get a stool sample tested to see if he has worms or giardia. That's also common in young dogs

I agree with the above and would like to add, a 6 week old puppy, I would be feeding no more than 1/2 a cup, probably less, 3x a day, you may be OVER feeding him at this age, and also at this age, what goes in comes out..
