    You can use it if you want, it's not a requirement. Lots of people like to use it for their flock as an immune system booster, some think it's a natural antibiotic and dewormer. People can drink it too, and you can give it to other animals, some people like to put it in bath water for itchy dogs. So it has some healthy properties. We like to give it to our chickens once in a while, two or three times a week, especially in winter. Use the kind that is organic, that has the "mother" in it. You keep it in the refrigerator. 1 TBSP per gallon. If you use much more than that, the chickens might not drink it.
