I was wondering about the powdered milk, since birds can't digest milk products wouldn't it be the same with powdered milk?

I'm asking because i've never used powdered milk had to drink it once with my cereal as a kid and For several years I couldn't even look at the cereal brand with out getting sick - I'm not a fan of White milk to start with and Powdered milk is gross lol
