Well I started my dog off on his prey model diet about two months ago and I've rotated around three different proteins; chicken, beef, and pork.
However, I encountered some problems during the process. One, both pork and beef are a bit more costly than chicken, especially beef. Two, my dog will not eat pork (I have given him pork neckbones and he still hesitated to eat it). I do give him his organs, he's had chicken liver and beef liver. Soon, I am going to an ethnic market for exotic organs for him.

I was wondering if I could just feed him raw chicken and occasionally give him beef/pork/other proteins?

I hope some of you can understand, I'm 18 with no consistent job I'm just trying the best for my dog. Suggestions for cheaper alternatives would be well appreciated.

PS. I do not have a large enough freezer to buy in bulk from butcher shops.silenced

If you can swing half bony chicken and half boneless pork and beef you are fine but all bony chicken isn't a good idea. Too high in bone [you could cut half of it out of course] but worse a poor omega 3:6 ratio and not enough of the big three micro minerals, iron/zinc/copper and feeding more liver wouldn't help.

There is no problem just giving chicken for bone if you prefer. There is no special virtue to beef/pork/lamb bone itself.
