    Does anyone here give there chicken any chicken supplements, either natural or store bought? If you do what do you give and why??

    I've heard that giving them apple cider vinegar, what does this do for them? Also I've heard of people giving them garlic? What does that do for them? Thank you!

    I don't give any suppliments at all. Just free access to good age-appropriate pellets or crumbles, and 4-5 hours of free ranging/pasturing (in my fenced in 1/2 acre yard) per day.

    Mine have access 24/7 to their food and water. I give them treats of scratch ,vegies, most everything that I can grow. I do grow a lot of corn and watermelon especially. Also tomatoes, squash, root crops, the list can go on. I feed them everything except potatoes. I figure they will eat what they want. I do free range them.
