|I have a Chi mix and an IG mix, both quite a bit bigger than yours at around 12-15lbs. But, they are easy to feed--chicken necks are my go-to with them when I need to add bone. I have a butcher in my area that bags up chicken necks and backs for 0.99/lb. In my experience, a typically sized neck is roughly an ounce.
I agree with Brody's comment on the game hens. I get them if I can find them cheap enough but often they're upwards of $3/lb. Fine if you have itty bitty dogs and you can get lots of meals out of them, I just have more and bigger mouths to feed so I have to keep costs low.
I also know many people on here are hard core prey model raw-ists, but I also add in veggies as well. If youre worried about them not getting enough volume, you can add canned pumpkin or sweet potato (unsweetened of course), or frozen then thawed and pureed green beans, spinach, broccoli, anything without too much sugar. I avoid things like peas, carrots, corn--too much in the complex carbs department. You can always add some meat juice or a dab of yogurt to the veggies if they dont like them, if they're anything like my dogs if there's a drip of meat juice it'll get gobbled up.
Don't forget you can feed eggs and canned sardines (packed in water, no salt) too. Both ready-to-go sizes for little ones! Good luck!
