    So we are finally getting our three new chicks tomorrow! I heard that not only was Apple Cider Vinegar was good for chicks health in general, but also for preventing pasty butt. We have a one quart plastic waterer, and I want to know if should add the AVC and how much I should add.

    Use 1 tablespoon ACV per GALLON of water. I usually mix up a gallon and then add it to my plastic waterer as needed.

    Enjoy your new chicks!

    You can add also one clove of garlic in the water( after you punctured it with knife point) it is a good anti bacterial prevention. You also can add some hot chilly flakes (2 tablespoon for 1 kilo of feed) it is a good anti helmintic (worms) prevention. Good luck
