Possible chicken allergy

I think my 6-mobth old Havanese may have a chicken allergy. Can anyone recommend a healthy chicken-free puppy food?

He has loose stools all the time. Parasites, etc. have all been ruled out.

my hav is 'allergic' to chicken, as well as turkey, duck, apples, carrots, oatmeal ... on and on and on... LOL

As for a good chicken free kibble, there are tons out there! Look into Natures Variety, or Wellness Simple or California natural! These are the options my vet gave me when her blood work came back, but I chose to homecook for her since she has SOOOO many allgeries and it was going to be cheaper, not to mention better for her! LOL

We switched Tucker to California Natural which is grain free plus they have several different flavors other than chicken. We were not sure at the time if he was allergic to chicken, environmental or what. Now we're almost certain it's environmental but we still feed him California Natural. We've recently changed to Kangaroo with Lentils from venison flavor. I mix the kibble with canned so Tucker gets both dry and wet. He also gets 1/2 tablet of Benadryl twice a day. That has really helped with his allergies.
