Question Someone critique this "menu" for me please !

Hi - we've been feeding Pugsley RAW in the AM for a few weeks now, he LOVES it.
Still doing kibble in the evening, but I'm not entirely sure we'll keep that up after what we have is gone. We'll evaluate then.

So far, all Pugsley has been getting is what I hear termed "Raw meaty bones" - things like chicken necks, chicken wings, drumsticks, and such.

Actually, cassblonde and I got a case of chicken necks locally that we brought back to my place and divided, weighed and bagged up for our dogs last week.

Anyhow - back to my question.

Pugsley is 21 lbs, and 1 year old. He's a nice shape now, but I don't think another pound or two would be a bad thing, though I don't think going over 25 lbs would be a good thing for him. He is a pug/beagle mix, gets one 30-ish minute walk most days, and spends at fair amount of time outside running about with the kids (we only have a small backyard). I guess I'd class him as moderately active.

So, I'm trying to work out what I need for better overall nutrition in his AM diet.

I've come up with two calculations, but they are quite different from one another. What I need is someone more knowledgable to tell me which would be the better one to follow !

Diet A :
RMB (chicken necks) : 2.0 oz
Muscle meat (chicken breast, steak, ground beef, tongue etc) : 1.25 oz
Organ meat (offal ?) : 0.17 oz

Diet B :
RMB : 3.25 oz
Muscle : 1.75 oz
Organ meat : 0.25 oz

Am I missing anything ?
