Thanks again for the replies, folks!
Just posting back real quick to share some pics of our little goofball that I just took. The one of him running to me, although blurry, cracks me up!!

Start with chicken backs. Feed for a week
Go to chicken quarters. Feed for a week. If you buy chicken quarters from a grocery, chances are there organ meat in it.
Next I would go with turkey necks for a week.
Then pork for a week
Then beef since it is hardest on the digestive system.
If any issues arise, I would go back to chicken backs and start over. I would not be a hurry to feed organ meat. Add it later when the pup is older. This is a prey model type raw diet and IMO the easiest way to feed raw. You can also try fish once a month.

My advice; Go 100% raw. Don't fret over it and keep it simple. Mirror the muscle/bone/organ content of a real animal. chicken quarters are a great way to start. Let the pups digestive system adjust before adding additional protein sources.
Just as a side note, I completely understand what you are going through. With my first dog, I was doubtful that I could do 100% correct and messed around for about a year with part high quality kibble part raw. Finally just went raw at about 1 year and never looked back. My second pup was weaned straight to raw. Never had any issues. I now am in possession of a 3rd dog and I switched her cold turkey to straight raw after about a week. Yes, she did take about a week to adjust to the change but she did very well and her physical appearance improved drastically.

Cleaver, scale, and dedicated cutting board that will hold up to a cleaver are my must haves.

|erfunhouse||For a good balance of meet a bone I do leg quarters or breast, bone in. You will have to chop it up, but a good cleaver will cut it with one or two hits!|
