    Should I add some apple cider vinegar to my chick's water on a monthly basis? Can it be supermarket brand or the kind given to horses? Does anyone else give acv regularly? What is it good for? DIgestion? worms?
    Thanks! ~Beulah

    Yes alot of people do, I believe it does aid in digestion, there are threads on the subject just getting into it myself...but I believe you shouldn't use in metal.

    I use it mainly to keep algae in check in my waterer. I didn't use it much over the winter-just in the warmer months. I use Bragg's organic kind and buy it from GNC or Kroger.

    Steer clear of GNC. I stopped by there last week and they wanted $22.85 for a quart. I went straight to Kroger and they had it on sale for $3.99... regularly $5.49. Braggs

    Dang. I wonder if they had it mismarked. I bought mine at GNC the first time and it was around $6 for a quart.
