Default Orijen six fish???

My boy is having allergy to chicken so I need to change an new kibble for him that is without chicken and grain ingredients . I am thinking of Orijen six fish but does any of you guys have experience with it? The kibbles from Orijen are kind of big in size right?

i used to feed orijen regionals and my babies loved it. now they're on acana and still love it. acana is a little bit more cheaper but the kibbles are a bit harder and bigger. to me personally the regionals were easier to break in half

I feed several of my kids Orijen and I LOVE it! We haven't tried the Six Fish yet, but we will soon (as I love rotational diets!). The kibble isn't huge... Maybe a bit smaller than a dime. My younger 2.5 pounders and my 3 pounder all eat it with no issue. However, my older 2.5 pounders have issues with it, due to their lack of teeth (so they eat the puppy version).

As a side note, my kids are the SOFTEST and SLEEKEST I have ever seen them since starting on Orijen. I absolutely love it and want to start more of my pups on it soon.

He is 7 months old now and he got all the adult teeth. When he is around 5 months old we tried the blue bufflo small breed puppy but he had diarrhea and vomiting from it. We bought him to the vet and he told us the kibbles are too big so he didnt even chew on it so thats course the problem. After that we switched to acana small breed puppy. It is a great food but the problem is allergy to chicken. By the way did you soak the kibbles into water every time you feed your kids? I did that all the time as the vet told us to do it since my boy doesnt chew and eat too fast.

I feed the Orijen 6 fish. I feed raw S&C rabbit, Primal duck alternatively with a few squares of ZP and leave a little bit of the Orijen out for free feeding. I've been feeding this food for over 6 months. She seems to like it ok and haven't seen any problems with her eating it with all her allergies. I just got her a new 2nd bag.

I just bought a bag of six fish today. It smell good and my boy love it so much even when I am just opening the bag lol but the kibbles are double triple the size of the acana small breed puppy. I am starting to mixing it with the old food without soak it with water so it hope to make him chew on it.

I feed acana pork and butternut squash to my dogs. My chi has a chicken allergy. The kibbles are rather large but he can chew them fine.

Orijen is a fabulous food also.
