    Can you use apple cider vinegar in metal waterers?I have been reading how beneficial it can be to chickens.Also I know chickens can be finicky about taste of water, will they detect it in the water and stop drinking if they don't like the taste?Any advise would be appreciated! Thanks

    No the acidic vinegar will corrode the metal water. The resulting compounds are harmful to chickens.
