    I think I read on this site that some people put cider vinegar and or garlic in the chickens water. What purposes does this serve, and what are the limitations if any as far as age, diet?

    While I will splash some ACV in the water, I tried the garlic thing, and it made the coop stink bad!! And I'm not talking about pizza. It smelled like some sort of dairy product gone sour. I don't think the chickens drank that water, either. [​IMG]
