    Do not add your ACV in a galvanized waterer, it makes it rust out faster.

    But it works great in the plastic waterers to keep algae and whatnot at bay!

    I drink it and like it, it is a change from the lemon water I normally drink. With lemon water and vinegar water you must acquire a taste for it.

    Has anybody confirmed that it is a preventitive for worms? Must you store the ACV in the refriderator or can you just leave a jar of it in the coop so that when you water your chickens its right there for you to grab?
