how often should i give my chickens yogurt for a treat? is i t bad to give them a ittle everyday?
My chickens get some occaisionally when I have some go bad in my fridge. I would think it's fine, except for the sugar content if it's the flavored type-- and the calcium is prolly more easily digested than oyster shells. Keep it a treat, make sure they get their balance. Chickens are much like us omnivores...little bit of everything, not too much of one thing. And fats/sugars sparingly. I haven't read or heard of yogurt hurting them, though. maybe experiment, then you can pass on advice to someone else! Good luck!
I use and recommend using plain organic yogurt for my chickens. They love it. Try mixing in a little cooked oatmeal for a wonderful treat!
I use any yogurt...what ever is in the fridge and i need to get rid of.... knock on wood no problems so far...but they only get a little yogurt cause the kids usually get it first before it has a chance to get close to the expiry date
You folks have me convinced...I AM GOING TO GIVE MY CHICKENS YOGURT! I am a great proponent of eating yogurt (beneficial bacteria, calcium, and all that good stuff), so why shouldn't the chickens have it? Next time out to the store, I'm getting it (the plain, low-fat kind)! Thanks! Genie
No, Genie!! Don't do it!
Make your own.
Yogurt is good for the birds if they are old enough, but it is better more natural
Oh, that sounds so good! But I will have to go and buy some Mason jars, at least I have a candy thermometer! Thanks! Genie
