Who adds apple cider vinegar to their water?
How much, and why?
I do. I use the regular ACV. It helps keep the slime down in the water, and keeps the bacteria down.
I do. No algae in waterer. Helps keep the girls healthy. 1 tablespoon per gallon..........
I do to.
i add 2 tablespoons for every gallon.
there is a web site that has all the good stuff that the ACV is good for.
sorry dont remember what it is.
Do you start them early/young on it so they get used to the taste?
Good question-can you start them at only days old? I've just learned about this, and am intrigued....
I will be watching this...very interesting...if you have links do share for us. Thanks!
I use Organic ACV from health food store myself I started my young not much in the babies but a tiny bit and in the big ones about 2 Tablespoons per gallon I use every time change the water and I use one of those scotch handle scrubbers and I put dish soap and bleach in the handle and each time I change the water I scrube the water good and rinse good. they are happy spoiled chickens.
So what is a tiny bit in the babies'?My waterer is about a quart...
