|Can you get chicken gizzards and hearts at a good enough price? They are much richer than chicken muscle meat in iron and zinc.
When shopping remember that bones are waste. Whole chicken is about 30% bone so there is only about 11 ounces of meat and skin per pound of whole bird. That would mean a $1 a pound chicken deal really costs $1.45 a pound if my math is right. [$1/11 actual ounces per poundx16 ounces=$1.45]. Haven't bought any lately but ground beef in the clearance bin was $1.50 a pound for quite a while.
I do notice a difference if I dot the i's and cross the t's in Max's diet but most people are just fine without perfect ratios and mgs of this and that. Go for it. Get the calcium in, stay away from irritating grains and feed plenty of meat with a little liver and fatty fish and it will be fine.
