How old can I start giving apple cider vinegar?
And how good is it?
I've seen it suggested to give new chicks so, I would say newborns.
Here's a thread I started on ACV that has some info you might be interested in:

Thank you for that it was really interesting.
I always use apple cider vinegar in my chicks water. When they first arrive I add sugar, too, to help them recover from the trip. I add 1 tbsp. per quart (1/4 cup per gallon), same amount of sugar. I realize that some people add less-1 tsp. per quart or even per gallon, but my amount seems to work for me. I use it because I use unmedicated feed, and it really seems to help keep them healthy and I have fewer pasty butts, even this time, when it has SNOWED for the last three days! (Getting to cold is one of the main reasons for pasting up.) And this after being in the high eighties the day before. Ah, spring weather...gotta love it!
Thank you thats great info, I read that it was really good for them but it didnt say from what age you could give it to them and I didnt want to harm my little chick.
