You can definitely add in new proteins if she's doing well. Take things slow.
Eventually you can mix proteins in each meal, it's just not a good idea in the beginning because if she gets an upset tummy, then you may not know what caused it. Go to the full post »

I just want to say thank you! All of you, Jordann and Natalie especially for always being on top of answering questions and being supportive!
Picked up my first free haul of meet- liver, deer, chicken, and pork. All of that will be sitting in the freezer for awhile lol

Don't feel horrible. It could just be the change from the breeder's house to yours, and the change in overall diet. Stress/change can do it alone.
Start back out feeding nothing but bone in chicken with all skin and fat removed for a few days. Once she's back on solid stools start adding meats back in.
Have you taken her to your vet for a well check yet? Do you know when the last time she was vaccinated or dewormed?

Infectious diseases are everywhere, no matter where you live or how well you "avoid" dirty areas. Chances are she's already been exposed to parvo and distemper but has adequate immunity to them from her mother.
How old was she when she was vaccinated? And did she nurse adequately as a newborn puppy?

She weights about 13 lbs. I'm not weighing what I feed. I've been giving her 1 wing and 1 drummie three times a day but they are obviously too small for her. Her mom weights 140 and dad is 180...I'm thinking she will be between 120-130 as an adult. Do you think I can start with leg quarters yet? And of she doesn't finish save it for the next feeding? I just don't know if I'm feeding enough or too little.

You may just have a stubborn one, and she is only a very young puppy so they forget that they have to pee and just go on the spot. In my family's experience for some reason the girls were always the tougher ones to housebreak, especially teaching them that when they GO OUTSIDE they have to pee lol
The joys of puppyhood Just be consistent with teaching where to pee and how you're gonna teach her to let you know when she needs to go and take out every hour or two and after meals, naps, playtime etc
