First 5 Ingredients:
Duck is a good start and source of protein that effectively covers each of the essential amino acids a dog needs, but keep in mind on this ingredient rank list, it factors in the water content, which is roughly about 70% or more water.
Duck meal is rendered parts from grinding carcasses and/or remains after the main meat is removed. There are pros and cons to meal. Its advantage is it provides lots of protein with an effective profile of the essential amino acids that a dog needs for a relatively lower cost and contains low moisture content relative to straight forward named meat ingredients. However, it goes through an extensive heating and processing to ensure it is safe to eat. Not much flavor is preserved and other nutrients are wiped out.
Chickpeas (Garbanzo beans) offers protein (not balanced amino acid profile for dogs) and a variety of nutrients. They are also high in carbohydrates and this includes significant dietary fiber.
Pea flour is a good source of fiber, protein, and other nutrients too, but note that it does contribute carbohydrates from its starch.
