|I intend on doing rabbit, chicken and fish as my primary meats with pork, beef and goat thrown in when its on sale. Also doing a good bit of venison this winter once I can get another deer.
I have never looked up specific fat percentages so I could be totally off base with this and I intend on researching it further to make sure I'm covering everything. With that being said, wolves eat game animals which are leaner than the average domestic animal we eat and everyone talks about how good deer is because its the closest to the natural prey item. So I would make the assumption that even though rabbit is leaner chicken it would actually be healthier than chicken due to the fact that it is closer to a dogs natural prey. I do intend on working out a system so that my rabbits are pastured as much of the year as possible and I'm hoping that my grow outs can be completed pastured. The dogs probably won't be eating rabbit more than 3 or so times a week and probably be getting fish about once a week so that leaves chicken a couple times a week with some pork and beef thrown in to mix it up, I don't feel like that is over feeding any protein and its more variety than the 3 protein minimum so I'm pretty happy with it. Like I said with the chicken vs rabbit thing, I could be completely wrong about that so if you have done the research then let me know as I would love to save myself some time lol, if not I definitely plan to do some research shortly.
