Default Feeding a raw diet

After months of my Lola refusing every dog food on the planet (wet, dry, freeze dried , rehydrated,) I have put her on a raw diet and so far so good! Feeding raw chicken complete meals at the moment until she gets used to it with a few wings thrown in as she's always loved the odd wing.
I don't want to feed the complete meals for much longer as it's expensive.
What do the raw feeders feed?
I've ordered some duck necks and chicken carcasses.

I feed whatever my local butcher has when I go, I'm lucky in that they have lots of stuff you don't normally see. They do a few staples, a beef pet mince and a tripe mince, but then it's a combination of Ox, Lamb, Pig hearts, Ox and Pig tongues, Beef rib, lamb rib, lamb neck, Ox cheek, Ox tail, pig tail, etc, as I said depends what they have in?

If you go down the route of DIY then don't forget the offal. I've been raw feeding for over 4 years now and my two love it, never turn their nose up at meal times!

Thank you
I will be going to the butchers tomorrow to see what he has. He's a proper black country butcher so I'm hoping for all sorts!

Proper butchers seems to be thin on the ground, many of them now get their meat delivered already butchered/filleted, etc. So if you find a good one you'll be sorted!

Get ready for your first experience of green tripe, it's a pleasure!

I've found his facebook page. He is definitely a 'proper butcher'
I'm not looking forward to tripe but if needs must!

Don't do Facebook and LF doesn't approve of advertising 🙄
Just give me the Butchers postcode, so I can look for him (not for the dog, for ME!!) sadly, humans don't approve of eating offal anymore - - does he make black pudding?? 😀
