I give my chickens fresh water every day, and they usually start drinking even as I'm pouring. But since I started adding vinegar (Bragg's organic) to their water, they don't seem as interested. I'm not sure they're drinking enough, now. How concerned should I be? Is there another way to get them to take the vinegar? I thought of soaking some cooked rice, which is one of their favorite treats, in it.
I started the vinegar supplement because one of my hens has loose stools, (a "loose caboose" as my mother used to say ) plus I know it's just generally good for them.
