    I have a few cans of evaporated milk, not sweetened condensed, but evaporated. Is this something that would be okay for chickens? I have been giving them a warm breakfast every morning, mixing hot water with some of their own feed, and adding a little of whatever is leftover from last nights supper. They love it. Just wondering if I could add some fo this milk to the mix.

    Milk is a good source of Riboflavin for chickens. the condensed milk should be fine too. I give milk to my chickens and they absolutely love it. You could always water down the condenesed milk if you were concerned, besides it would make it last longer too. [​IMG]

    Does anyone know if I could use condensed milk in a milk flush against coccidiosis?

    I'm pretty sure I have cocci in my "flock" (there are only two chicks XD and they're both about 2 weeks old)
    They're not showing any symptoms at all other than the orangish reddish poop thankfully.
    And btw I can't get any Corid/Amprolium/AmproMed as none of the stores around me carry it and I'm not allowed to order online.

    Thanks, though!!
