    Hello, so I was just reading all the different posts about treats for chicks and yogurt was a common suggestion. But recently I found someone who said they give their chickens non-dairy yogurt to their chickens since they cannot digest dairy. Is that true? Is it really bad for the chickens?

    I give mine plain Greek yogurt, but sparingly they like it, they LOVE cheese but I limit that and cottage cheese is not their fave the treat list here lists these foods as a fine treat, sometimes it just depends on your girls I think ☺
