Is a Vitamin B complex containing B12, B6 Riboflavin, Niacin, and Pantothenic Acid okay for backyard Chickens, Ducklings and babies? I have given B12 before to pick them up when down and I know the Niacin and Riboflavin are ok, but am concerned by the B6 and Pantothenic Acid.

Yes, I use B-complex for my ducklings since I'm unable to get plain Niacin here in Sweden. :)

Edit: And just to be clear, my b-complex includes all those same ingredients (including the B6 and pantothenic acid). ;)

Thank you so much for responding. I have 2 wk12 old ducklings that I rescued and they and my now 6 wk old chicks are on a Backyard Fowl feed but I know the ducklings need the Niacin which is in the Vitamin B12 complex. I also have a melancholy hen that I have given straight B12 to and it perked her up. I appreciate the feedback.
