|Max adores chicken backs. They are way too bony to feed with a little ground meat and organ though. Even a whole chicken has 30% bone so you would ideally feed 1 pound of chicken with 2 pounds of boneless meat plus the organs. If chicken backs were going to be a permanent part of the diet you would likely end up feeding 1 pound of back to 4 or 5 pounds of boneless meat and organs.
For starting out some dogs do need super bony stuff like the back but most dogs would get too constipated. Starting with chicken quarters is usually better.
A mostly chicken diet might be better than poor quality kibbles but it is lacking in a number of key nutrients. Better is feeding half chicken parts and half red meat like beef, pork and lamb and even better is feeding mostly beef, pork and lamb.
A mostly chicken back diet cannot be recommended at all.
