Woof...Max (our 11 yr old GSD) has been on raw food diet for about 3.5 weeks now..the first 10 days or so was weining him into it from kibble/canned dog food and we made mistake of giving him chicken 1 day, beef next day an he has loose poops, but thanks to this group we learned to stick to chicken which he has been eating along with his turkey necks. He is very picky and is getting real bored with chicken-even though he gets thighs 1 day, split breat (w/bone in) next day etc. He wants to know if he can switch to beef or pork seeing how his poops have been solid for about 4 straight days. Also when switching to next protein I did read that we should just add a little of new protein to his chicken dinner but once he works up to full meal of pork or beef does he have to stay on just that protein for a while or can he still go back to chicken for a day to prevent boredom? thanks in advance for your help

Since his poos look good, you can start adding a new protein a little at a time until he is completely switched. And yes, you can feed him chicken meals too since he is already adjusted to those.
