Hello! I have just given my 6 week old poult Tylan. He stopped last night, so I've started him on yogurt today (organic, non-fat, plain ). I don't want this thread to turn into whether or not yogurt is safe for poultry. I'm an animal science major and have taken animal nutrition courses in college (plus the advice of people feeding it for decades) and made my own decision. I was just wondering if anyone could tell me the amount/dosing information? I did a search on BYC for "yogurt" and found 1 TBSP per cup of feed... but I've got 3 poults and they only eat maybe a cup of food throughout the whole day (which I make in small batches). My question is - how much yogurt (optimally) should this poult be getting in a day? And should it be 2Xday or 3Xday or just throughout the day? Also - how long should I give it to him? A few days, a week? And is it ok for the other two poults to eat it while he's getting it - or should I try to feed it to him separate? Thanks for any help or advice!
