    It's working but it's giving my chicken diarrhea. My father in law uses this stuff for his cows, he said it would be okay for a chicken.
    I've been putting a small handful in her feed every day.
    Should I get some pro-biotic yogurt maybe?
    I don't want to stop giving it to her because it's working!

    Sure, I'd try the yogurt. I've never given my chickens the crumble that you mentioned. Do you have an ointment or wound dressing that you could use? Maybe some Blue Cote or some Iodine?
