I'm going to try and put Quark on the raw diet. What I would like to know is what is the best way to schedule his different items? I know for the first couple of weeks he'll just get chicken, then I'll gradually start introducing other things. He is about 6-7 pounds so according to what I've read so far he should be getting about 3oz of food a day? Is that right? It doesn't seem like enough food for an entire day, even if he is using it more efficiently. I had the opportunity the other day to go to a new grocery store here, Western Beef. The whole back of the store where the meat/butcher is located is one giant walk-in refrigerator. They have everything! All types of meat, organs and all. And CHEAP! I also had my friend with me who put everything on her EBT card since its really "human" foodstuff and not pet food its covered. So it didn't cost me anything. I got chicken necks, chicken wings, beef heart, beef liver, beef kidney, lamb chops. I cut everything up into 1 1/2 ounce pieces and put it all in the chest freezer so its ready when he is. But I don't know how to divide things up for his meals to make sure he's getting the right ratios of 80% meat/10% bone/10% organ (5%liver). And for the first couple of weeks on chicken only, should every piece have bone in it? And should I take out small pieces of bone fragments he could swallow whole without at least a couple of chews first? I'm very paranoid about doing things like this. Too many times in the past trying to do what's 'good' and 'right' for someone or something has come back to bite me in the butt and end up costing me more money and heartache than if I had just left things as they were.
