    ACV for chicks

    We just brought home some baby chicks today. I’ve been reading some about ACV in water but it’s always referring to adult chickens. Do chicks need it too? What age and how much? They’re in the brooder inside right now and will go out to a coop/run in a few weeks. They are on medicated chick feed.

    Southern snow chickens!

    Mine made a mad dash out the door....stopped dead in their tracks, and made a mad dash back for the coop:) After having breakfast in the coop they came out for a little bit and huddled under bushes. I'd call them big babies, but I don't want to be in it either!

    cocci or worms?

    Have a rooster that is passive and off on his own. He will eat and drink when given to him, but not really go in search of it. We have had him for several weeks now and he has been like this since day one. He has watery white and green poop and only about twice has had a bright red blood spot in...

    Is there anything chickens can't eat?

    garlic and onions will make the eggs taste bad, but garlic is supposed to be a natural dewormer for chickens. You would just have to mix you eggs with sausage for a good omelet for a few days
