    Have you separated him from the flock? Offer yogurt, with maybe some feed mixed in. Is he pooping ok? Are they "normal"?

    Yes I separate him ..yes he's pooping normal and active
     
  4. Sick birds don't need feed changes...Yogurt is not needed for Chickens..Provide him his feed..Water is the most important thing right now..

    I had a hen a few weeks ago that wasn't eating. I gave her yogurt, which they love and some vitamins in her water. In a couple of days she was her normal self. yogurt is good for them...
    Know it's confusing when you get different answers, but yogurt is good for them and will do no harm.
