|Three weeks is very early to be on a complete raw diet of 4-6 proteins and 4-6 different organs. I fed Max for a week on just chicken and a week for each new protein and each organ and that was probably rushing a bit. Pups can move faster but tortoise wins this race! Try cutting the amount of organ fed in half for a few days, suspect that is what is making the uneven consistency happen. Or feed a single organ for a few days to see if you can detect one that needs to be fed more carefully, perhaps his gut is fine with extra beef kidney and not so fine on the precise amount of pork liver he should have on a raw diet, who knows? Feeding easy chicken backs can make for 'nicer' poop than the long bones of that same chicken.
Adding a turkey neck is not nothing, it is a great amount of bony meat. One is usually more food than 38 pound Max needs in one day and about 5 days worth of bone. Use them, they are terrific. But use them as part of the diet, not as a nice chewy. If you want him to have a harder to eat meal try a pig foot if he is okay on pork. They are very tough to eat due to the super tough skin and actually not as fatty and bony as one might think according to USDA.
It is normal for poops to vary quite a bit. Unless each meal is always the same amount of the exact same grind and the dog had exactly the same amount of excitement and exercise poop isn't going to be exactly the same. Maybe not even then especially with a young pup.
