Oh gosh, I wish you'd saved that liver!!! :) Liver is one of the most nutritious nutrient dense organs you can feed. Absolutely an essential part of a raw diet. (Although if you are feeding mainly Ziwi, it would just be icing on the cake so to speak.)

Yes, hearts are fed as meat. Lung is too, although there are some that say it can count as an organ. All good.

Yep, you're good to go!! You don't necessarily have to feed meat/bones/organs at every meal though. It's balance over time. So you could feed a meal of just meat. The next day let them chew on the neck and get a good teeth/jaw workout. Maybe a smidge of organ along with some meat the next day, etc. My guess is that they won't be able to do much with the venison bones so you will have to supplement with chicken wings/necks or some other bone source.

I like to keep a supply of chicken wing tips in the freezer. They are easy to dole out when needed and have just enough bone to firm up stools if needed. Brody happily crunches through them frozen straight from the freezer. :)

Whole rabbits was my undoing. I thought it would be so cool for Brody to have the whole thing and was planning on just cutting it up into a bunch of meals. The head freaked me out, as did their little feet. They were just so lifelike and cute. I had a VERY hard time doing it. Ended up wasting much of it which made me feel bad, but I just couldn't do the head and I couldn't do the innards either. :(

Just didn't have the stomach for it.

Now if it's already a body part like a lung or a liver or a heart - that's great! No problem for me there. But a whole rabbit was just too hard for me to handle.

You know what part of that rabbit he loved the most??? THE EARS! I did slice them off before tossing the head and he absolutely went NUTS. I wish I had a whole bag of them, the fresh ones I mean. I have bought him dehydrated ears complete with fur but he wasn't impressed. ;)
