    I have two questions...

    For those who use the raw ACV in their flocks water, how much do you add?

    Also, I like to ferment Kombucha for a long time to a vinegary flavor (I use it in my hair instead of ACV because ACV smells awful to me). Anybody use Kombucha instead of ACV?

    I've given my chickens cut up Kombucha SCOBY as a treat and they go crazy for it!

    I have been wondering the exact same thing. I notice this post is from a while ago. Did you ever try it? I have some kombucha that i let go too long and would love to add it to their feed or water. it seems it would have the same benefit as ACV!

    I add kombucha to their feed instead of water to make their treat mash, and once a week (or so) add it to their water with garlic for the day. They seem to like it, and at least it doesn't go to waste. They go nuts for thinly sliced SCOBY too!
