How often do you feed raw per day?

Mine get kibble in the morning and raw in the evening. I kinda want to get away from kibble once Griff's growth plates have closed. Is it preferable to feed raw twice a day as well? Maybe a small meal in the morning to settle their stomach and the main meal in the evening?
Curious how you all do this.

I feed twice per day. 3X, for the most part, per day up until 6 months.

My dogs seem to do better while grazing. They eat when hungry, and never overeat so it works for us. I just fill up each bowl with 6 cups of food, and they pick at it for 2-3 days, then I fill them up again. Once a week they'll get some Dyne, fish oil, a can of tuna or chicken, olive oil and eggs mixed in, and occasionally they'll get raw chicken as a treat or when I'm meal prepping they'll get the fat trimmings. When they were younger, they ate 2-3 times a day in smaller portions, and when we went raw for a while they had one large raw meal eat and had access to kibble if they were still hungry. This caused some digestion problems so for now we're just sticking with kibble.

Raw fed 2xs daily equal weight. I give the liver portion in the pm and other organ in the am. Supplements are given in the am. He does have a tendency at night to protest the amount he gets at dinner. Depending on how active he was that day determines if he gets a little more or not.

Mostly once a day in the evening by the dogs choice. She asks for morning treats then goes until evening for her meal. Fussy, picky eater.

One to two times a day with treats scattered in between. Whatever they need.
