    I have heard that I am supposed to use Raw unfiltered ACV but I cant find it. What would happen if I used the kind we use to make our sweet pickles with? Would it work?

    Do you have a Whole Foods or Sprouts near you? We always go to the natural food stores like that to get it. I think it cost maybe $1 more than the regular stuff. On occasion i have used the regular stuff from the grocery store and gave it to them, didn't seem to hurt them. They were just as happy and healthy as ever!!

    General Nutrition Center (GNC) also carries the Braggs raw ACV if you have one anywhere near you.

    Any health food store I ever seen carried Braggs. We shop at Ingles here in Georgia and they carry it. Even cheaper than the health food store.

    How about feeding the grey stripe sunflower seeds that have been hulled? I saw on the bag that they were 23% protein. I was going to mix it into their feed for winter.

    Regular ACV works great too. Just not as potent.

    I would suggest tossing a handful of sunflower seeds on the ground for them to scratch at. A treat.

    I have been using regular ACV that I mixed "turned" apple cider with. The cider was beyond the hard stage and was vinegar. I just poured it in the jug and let the 2 mix.

    Why use ACV in the water? How is it beneficial and how much to use per gallon of water? I'm new with chickens in case you can't tell!
