My baby chicks r 3 weeks old on starter food ... But I'm wondering if I can or should give them a little plain yogurt

There's a lot of great peeps here! Feel free to ask lots of questions. But most of all, make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to join the BYC family. I look forward to seeing you around the run. I'm sorry, but I'm not sure. I know my grown girls love it. But chicks can be complicated.
Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-

Welcome to the forum!

The yogurt shouldn't hurt the babies! Some even use plain yogurt as a treatment for pasty butt.
Just remember all treats should be given in moderation.
Good luck!

They will do just fine on their chick starter - it is made for young chicks.

A little plain yogurt is ok once in a while for the chicks, yogurt has probiotics in it which is good for their digestion. As already stated by a previous greeter, keep the treats to a minimum or the chicks will fill up on that instead of their nutritionally balanced feed.

 

Have fun with the little ones!

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
