|I used Spring Meadows with Farles for almost a year before switching to prey model, then prey. I really liked that brand! It is made the next province over from me and Farles did well on it, but with his size I couldn't afford to feed anything other than mostly chicken and a bit of beef.
I don't really worry about feeding treats, personally. He gets all sorts of treats and many of them are processed (baked, dehydrated, etc) and some do contain grains of some kind, and he has no problem with it. If Jewel has no problem either, I don't see why you'd have to avoid them or wait before/after raw meals to give them. I don't, anyway.
Has Jewel been introduced to chicken already? If so then I'd keep with the chicken for a few days and make sure she has good stools on it and tolerates it, then you can add in a little bit of beef with the next meal, see if she tolerates that, and add in more next time, etc. Once she is accustomed to both proteins, you can go ahead and alternate them or not, whichever works for you and Jewel.
Congrats on making the switch and be sure to update us on Jewel's progress!
