    I have new chicks (under 2wks) and have them on liquid vitamins- do I add the ACV and Vitamins in the same water or two different containers?

    Personally I would not mix the two in the same water - others might say different.


    I do not do either [​IMG]

    I checked with a scientist for the answer on this one. He said the only reason not to, would be if the Vinegar binds with the protein in the vitamins you're using - this would cause it to clump and fall to the bottom of the waterer therefore not being utilized. He told me to mix a few drops of the vinegar with a few drops of the vitamins, if it remained liquid it was fine.
