    Can anyone tell me how to create the Yogurt mix that everyone says the chicks love to eat..
    I tried 2 times already to give them Yogurt mixed with some of their Chick Starter and they wouldn't even peck at it.

    Either i'm not adding enough of something or missing an ingredient, I need to know how much of each ingredient to mix in.

    I've bought regular plain yogurt, what else needs to be in the mix?

    sometimes you can just give them the yogurt plain, but it can create quite a mess! Usually i just mix equal amounts of yogurt with their food you normally give them! It can become kinda thick, but it makes it more fun for them to eat :D Sometimes i feed them the mix right off the spoon, and they go crazy for it!

    I've tried for 2 days in a row now and they won't even try it.. I've put it on my finger and see if they'll try it and they obviously don't like it. I made it with equal parts food + plain yogurt, I could try to put just yogurt in there and see if they'll peck at it.. but I doubt it.

    - They're so in love with scratching around in their food bowl that the consistency must not be appealing to them.
