    Does yogurt really work for feeding the chicken and then cleaning his/her butt?

    Plain cultured yogurt can be fed to chickens in small amounts to give probiotics to them, which helps to increase the beneficial intestinal bacteria, making them more immune to infection. I'm not sure where you got the part about using it to clean their vents, but it kind of helps their pipes stay healthy.
