Chickens Eat Yogurt?

Chickens eat yogurt? Why yes they do!

Trying to get Penguin healthy again I contacted the vet who suggested extra protein and calcium to help her. So I thought… do I get extra calcium in her diet? I heard a rumor that chickens love yogurt. I’ll give it a try. Of course it has to be plain, organic yogurt.

I started with just a spoonful and dipped Penguin’s break into it. At first she seemed irritated, but once she got a taste she went crazy and started gulping it down! I put a small dish in her cage and watched as her face got covered in yogurt! She tried everything to get it off her face. Wiping her face in her bedding and rubbing the sides of her cage was not helping. I even tried to help her but she wouldn’t let me touch her.  I finally gave up, laughed and took a little video instead.
