    Apple Cider Vinegar, raw, organic, unfiltered (with the mother) is good for you too. It is very healthy to take tbsp a day to prevent things that might ail you. It is antibiotic, antifugal, antiviral, antiyeast etc. Just plain good for you probiotics - just like yogurt - lots of healthy little enzymes that help the good stuff in your body do its job by boosting function and immunity.

    I make a "cocktail" with it.

    no religion, no politics, no ACV discussions [​IMG]


    I want to clarify my statement about my "cocktail"

    might be one of those faith things...I drink it semi-regularly, with some honey or grape juice, the RAW stuff. I think it may help strengthen your immune system, like eating any fresh fruit, apple or orange every day.

    It may be "disagreeable" to some parasites, but may not be toxic to them enough to slough off an infestation.


    I recently de-wormed with wazine, after reading advice about regular de-worming from JJ and PineGrove on another forum. did not have valbazen? on hand.


    ultimate choice? its really up to you if you want to supplement, like if you want to go to church on Sunday to worship "God" or go commune with the "Great Quail Spirit" by cleaning your bird pens.

    knowledge dispensed here is from all levels of the Quail kingdom, from Pets to Heavy Duty Industrial, and what works for some may not work for all.

    Quote:we had a long discussion about viruses in your system and ph levels, way back in my college days.
    theory was that when you were "stressed" and body ph dropped, viruses found a welcome environment.
    like "cold sores" aka "luggage for life"

    I use ACV to ween my coturnix chicks off their game chick water potty based founts, to clean fresh water bottle founts. (Which they can manage to squirt poop in, no matter how high you mount them) [​IMG] .

    Coturnix don't generally like the taste, and will seek out other sources of clean fresh water, but will not dehydrate during the transmission period because they have their ACV tainted potty founts.

    The exact benefit is unknown to me. If properly dosed, it is harmless! There may be some sort of benefit, especially unfiltered versions containing MOTHER, but a good feed and clean fresh water doesn't hurt either [​IMG]
