    I got to visit with the poultry expert Kelly Klober. He told me that this is something he likes to use. He said it will clear up Coccidiosis and heal most cases of respiratory illness provided the birds are not Chronically ill. I have not yet experimented with it but I wanted to share it.

    He said take a Gallon of raw unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar.
    Add several Garlic cloves and drop in a couple of very hot red peppers. Let it sit for about a day or two.
    Give the birds about 2 tablespoons per gallon of water, for Coccidiosis, and a little more than that for respiratory illness.
    Just thought I would pass it along.

    That almost sounds like plague formula for people, minus the horseradish. Powerful stuff!

  5. Has anyone actually tried this? Is it a good preventional measure?

    I've used ACV in their water, but never with the garlic or red pepper.
