|Try chicken breast for your new puppy or offer the whole leg quarter. Don't be too concerned with him eating all the bone. We offer all that bone to start out to firm the stool and it isn't needed for nutrition.
Agree with Hank, chicken alone isn't a good diet. It is far too high in bone and very low in several important nutrients. If you could get chicken hearts and gizzards and feed twice as much of them as bony chicken and liver you would be doing better. Can you get beef heart? Lots of dogs do fine with bony chicken, beef heart and a couple sorts of liver and kidneys.
I wouldn't want to raise a pup on just chicken with rabbit coming in the future maybe, do find a way to get red meat and a variety of organs into his diet as quickly as his gut allows.
Hope you are planning to feed the whole rabbit too, by itself rabbit isn't much better than chicken. The whole thing, blood/guts/head/skin, is a great diet however.
