    The short answer is SOME.
    I use plain yogurt and bene-bac powder and there's no dosage for chickens on that either.
    I put a teaspoon of bene-back in a gallon of water about once every week or two and sometimes I'll feed about a pint or two of yogurt to 10 chickens.

    If there's no reason to believe they need any (no anti-biotics given or extra stress) I may not give any for months.
