    Does anybody know if anyone makes a powder form of the "good gut bacteria" ? I can get it in yogurt but my birds dont like it and they will not eat it so I was thinking if there was a powder form then I could sprinkle it on their food or mix it in their water and trick those little buggers Thanx ahead of time for any help

    You can buy acidophillus or Bacid capsules otc at any drug store. I have no idea what a dose would be for birds?
