    Hello all,

    I believe i know the answer to my questions but i thought i would check on here to see what you guys say. Can ACV be mixed in my chickens water with antibiotics or will the acv kill the antibiotics in the water? What about fermented feed? If chickens are on antibiotic water and are fed fermented feed will the acv in the feed kill the antibiotics?

    I think it's more likely that the antibiotics will kill the probiotics (from the ACV) in the water. Don't know much about chickens but when the humans in our house are on antibiotics, we make sure that we are on probiotics as well. If the same applies, it will be more beneficial for the chickens to be on ferments feed while on antibiotics.
