    When I ordered my chicks last night, they came with "probiotics". I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do with the probiotics, though. Can you guys help me??

    Probiotics are bacteria supplements that help establish the correct population of bacteria in the gut of young animals. Yogurt is also used sometimes as a probiotic. They are usually a water or feed additive, probably they will come with directions on how to use them. If not post again with the kind they send, and someone should be able to help you.
