    I know yogurt is okay but is Activia yogurt okay? We have a couple different flavors like cherry and strawberry. Is it okay to give all of those at one time?

    might help if some of the hens are feeling "irregular"

    I can't afford to buy it for myself so I don't think my chickens will be getting any of it!!!

    I don't think it should hurt....

    Doesn't Activia have Probiotics in it? That's a good thing...

    It does have good probiotics but a lot of sugar. If you can buy plain yogurt insted, it's better.

    Eh, yeah, sugar content is probably high because it's flavored...

    a little bit as a treat shouldn't hurt, though.
