    Never hear of anyone giving their chickens Probios probiotics after worming, times of stress, medicating, etc. Only yogurt or buttermilk for the probiotics. I would think a product specifically formulated for animals as a probiotic would be more potent and effective. Thoughts, experiences????

    I have always used probios on my dogs and pigeons after worming, administration of antibiotics, or during stressful situations. If I am out of probios, I use plain yogurt and/or acidophilous capsules.
