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?

Mine like to lay their beaks into the yogurt on the side and work on it nonstop. They look like little machines as they drain a bowl down.

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