    I have been reading great things about both Apple cider vinegar and the RopaPoultry Oregano oil. Would it be ok to use both? I have a 3 gallon waterer in the coop and a 5 gallon in the run. I could put ACV in one, Ropa in the other. Or should I just stick with one? My chicks are 6 weeks old.

    Thanks!

    I've been putting oregano oil and acv mixed in the same waterer for about 2 years. No problems. About 5-10 drops of oregano oil and 2-4 tablespoons of acv in a gallon. For chicks you might want only about 7 drops max in a gallon and about 2 tablespoons of acv per gallon max.
