    I am pretty new, but have been using ACV in the water for 8 weeks, ever since I took the 3 week old chicks off the vitamins/electrolytes. I have not had any problems.

    I LOVE the nipples! I started those from the second day. First day was a disgusting mess. Yuck! I have never looked back.

    Yes, they are great!
    I added stainless steel bushings (inside the container) so the ACV (or any other additive) wouldn't react with the metal.
    I continue to use electrolytes on the inside waterer (coop), because of the stressful hot summer...now we have Irene! [​IMG]
