Hi, I just wanted to say that for us....we started giving our chicks yogurt around 5wks? We gave them yogurt around three - four times a week. They really enjoy it. So far we have not had any health problems. Actually, really really healthy chickies. I do attribute it to the yogurt, ACV, fresh fruit and fresh air. Good luck!!!
Well, I just gave them a little yogurt. They dont seem so enthused. lol. So ill just keep it out there for a while. I think they have coccidia, so Im treating them for that and Ive been reading that milk products help chicks infected with coccidia.
Now for the ACV. Does it have to be organic. I have regular plain ACV, but it doesnt have the "mother" in it.
I am sorry Apple Cider Vinegar. I do not believe it has to be organic, the stuff I buy isnt. I cant get organic.
I mixed my yogurt with chick starter crumbles at first so it was a little easier for them to eat. I do not feel that it has made our chickies fat at all. They free range for half a day every day. Lots of fresh air and exercise. And Yes, please use plain low-fat yogurt. I stopped giving it to them regularly at about 3 1/2 months. Now they just get it as a treat.
