I have some sick chickens - Can I put antibiotics in the poult's water?? They are 1 1/2 weeks old. I have been washing my hands constantly (well almost) and I just want to be sure they don't get sick (don't think I have transferred anything, but want that extra protection)

you can but then you will need to feed them yogurt after the antibiotic treatment is done to replace teh good bacteria in their guts.

Interesting, but I have heard that it is not good to feed chickens yogurt? It is ok to give to turkeys? (it only makes sense to replace that bacteria, at least to me but I have seen somewhere that they don't digest milk proteins well? )

natural non flavored yogurt. good for chickens and turkeys. Milk is not good, something about them not being able to break it down enough. Apple cider vinegar is good also

Even if they don't break down proteins in milk, the bacteria in the yogurt should have broke it down and you are after the bacteria anyhow, not the protein.
