The Raw diet I feed Bella is mainly Chicken, veggies, supplements, ground nuts. I got the recipe from a dog nutritionalist who had me add organ meat to the mix, but only 10% max (depending on how much you feed, for Bella it trns out to be almost a TBLS. I use chicken liver/gizzards or beef liver.

add in a tiny bit, and increase that ammount over the next weeks/months. liver should only be about 5% of the diet, so it's not a huge ammount. work up to it tho

what bit(s) of chicken is he getting?
you can always remove the skin for a couple days to see if that helps.
his system might just be a bit overwhelmed, see how he does in the next day or two.
is he on meds for skin issues? meds mess up my dogs stomach pretty badly.
