    I've heard that apple cider vinegar is great for all animals (and humans). But I just wanted to make, sure- is it OK for peas?

    I used it for when my chickens were sick, they healed a week or two after I gave it to them... If your peacocks are sick or something, I am sure it would be fine to give it to them.

    Well, they're not sick, but I've heard that ACV is good to give them to KEEP them healthy. I've heard it has many health benefits.

    I've read that many times but forget what amount to give. I'm assuming in water? Do you know? Thanks!

    Yes, you are supposed to mix it in with their water. Any amount from 1T -1 cup per gallon of water, I've read. I give it to my chickens and guineas, but I don't know if I should try with my peachicks. I only have 5, so I don't know if I should take my chances. [​IMG]

    Put "apple cider vinegar peafowl" in the search window. All kinds of information and sounds like it has multi purposes that are all good. I'm going to read it later. I'm off to Tractor Supply to get some Manna Pro suppliment for my peafowl and have lunch. [​IMG]

    I would give it to them and not worry one bit about it. It's good stuff and good for everything!! [​IMG]
    But I wouldn't use 1 cup to 1 gallon of water! I only use a couple of TBS per gallon.
