    I always add ACV 'with the mother' to my flock's waterers but not sure if it's ok to add
    a very small amount in the quart plastic waterers I have in my 'pre-brooder' boxes in which I now have 38 chicks that are only a week old. Thanks.

    ACV with the "mother" is very good for small chicks! It helps prevent pasty butt and I hear it also helps prevent coccidiosis. I've started using it with my new chicks I've been so impressed with the results I've been giving it to my entire flock.
