|Welcome and congrats on the new baby!
Check out Chance's "Beginner's Guide..." that I just bumped to the top. It is loaded with great information for getting started. I also bumped Charlie's guide to proteins/cuts and the "So you are interested in raw..." thread.
Take a dive into this information to get a feel for what a balanced raw diet looks like. Then come back and ask questions. We are here to help!
To answer your questions, I have never heard of needing to feed a puppy so many times per day. I can't offer much help there.
Definitely feed chunks that are bigger than the pup's head to avoid another gulping incident.
And as for kefir, milk, etc., that's really a matter of personal choice. I would treat it more as a supplement than an integral part of the diet itself. Many of us here follow a prey model raw diet and do not count these extras as part of the diet.
Eggs are a great addition to the diet, but not absolutely necessary. They are rich and should be introduced slowly. You might focus for now on reading up on starting a dog off on raw, and build up to including eggs later.
