I have heard of people putting powdered milk in their feed, but no I would give them water. First milk in the heat would spoil very fast, second they need water at all times.

I read somewhere recently that chickens have a hard time digesting lactose. Perhaps the lactose free milk in just a small container that they would drink quickly?

How soon should you start giving them yogurt, and well... any food other than chick crumbles?
