    If they are babies, they need Niacin. I just give mine a tablespoon or so of Brewer's yeast (not bread yeast) on their starter crumbles. They sell it at healthy food stores like Whole Foods. If they are adults, I don't give mine vitamins but I do make sure they get a lot of leafy green vegetables and good quality feed. Others opinions may vary though.

    If they're about a year old. Does the brewers yeast still apply?

    Someone posted just the other day that they stop the brewer's yeast after the first month or so. I still give it to mine (they are also about a year old) figure it can't hurt but it probably isn't necessary. Why do you think yours need vitamins? Are they having any problems?
