    My chickens are nearly 6months old. They normally just eat Chick Crumbs but when I run out, I just give them fruit, bread and plain yogurt. What else can I give them? And when do I stop giving them the Chick Crumbs??

    At 6 months old they should definitely be on layer pellets or layer mash.

    I see you are feeding your chicks yogurt. I have read that dairy products are not good for chickens. I will be interested to see what others have to say about that.

    I read that it's good for them, they really enjoy it and so far nothing bad has happened.
