    I've had great success using probiotics for various ailments in my backyard chickens and I made a video showing how they helped a badly battered rescue chicken.

    Nice video

    I use a probiotic powder formulated specifically for chickens.
    I use it in chicks first water.
    I also use it and a bit of Kefir in my fermented feed.

    Chicks with a healthy mother hen get probiotics from some of her feces.

    Right from the start is best with humans so it makes sense that it would be with chicks too. :)
