    So, I've been reading the threads on pasty butt etc, and have figured out that lots of people like to feed yogurt to make the chicks' guts happy... my concern is that I have mine on medicated starter crumbles (we have 50lbs of it! and the 9 chicks are only 2 days old) and won't the medication just kill the probiotics in the yogurt?

    It was recommended by various ppl/books/posts/etc that medicated was the way to go, but now I'm worried I'm ruining their digestive track!!!

    Advice please....
