Question The Right Amount in %

Im going to start on sunday by adding liver to Chico's Raw meat. But how do i know how much to add? I know Meat 80% Liver 5% and Kidney 5% and bones 10% But i don't know how much that means?

Chico is eating 1 ounce for each meal so can anyone please help me to get the right amount for Meat, Liver, Kidney, and bones please.
Separately and together.

Organs are very rich and can cause loose stools. I would begin with just a tiny amount, fed in conjunction with a bony meal. You can work up to the full amount gradually, just get his tummy used to it for now.

How much total does he eat a day? Then I can calculate it for you.

I do my stuff in broader strokes, don't try to feed bone and liver every day. If it is 2oz a day that he eats then that means he needs 3oz if liver a MONTH. So get 3 oz of liver and separate it out into a bunch of tiny pieces and freeze them, throw one in a meal every so often. Or feed them as a treat before dinner.

Also I wanted to make sure- you are feeding bone sometimes, and meat a lot right now right? Your other thread made it seem like you stopped feeding bone for some reason. You want to make sure you feed your first organ along with a bony meal. But to start with just feed the teeniest tiniest amount of liver, make sure it goes down ok.

I think I made it even easier for you-

60 ounces a month total= 3 ounces liver, 3 ounces other organ, 6 ounces bone, 60 ounces (or 3.75lb) meat.

You will drive yourself crazy trying to calculate it by meal, and you would need a gram scale! If I were you I would get together what you need for the month then just portion it out into 2oz portions. Some days bonier, some days will be meatier, some days will have organ some wont.
