|Unless you feed the same thing and the same amount every meal you are going to have varying poop types. It is just fine. Max has very dark gooey poop when he gets lots of organ and it is paler if he has had lots of chicken or pork. Harder if he has had bone, softer if meat only. I would expect to see mucous if he got lots of fat too.
Don't feed a new to raw dog liver once a week. Start with a very small amount daily, work up to that 5% liver daily and then work towards feeding less often. Max has been on raw for nearly 5.5 years and gets organ every other day still. There is no particular virtue in feeding it once a week.
If poop is crumbly then you can feed less bone. Before you do that get your dog on more variety, especially red meats.
Start with bony chicken - done.
Substitute red meat for some of the chicken meat - this is where you are now. A bony chicken and liver diet is not satisfactory. You must feed less bone and red meat. Chicken is very low in a number of essential nutrients.
After all the usual proteins have been fed start liver.
