    I put ACV in my waterers every day, and was wondering if it prevents gleet? and what else does it help with? Thanks!

    ACV doesn't completely prevent gleet, but the acidity in it can help keep the digestive tract healthy.
    Good luck!

    Does a slightly messy butt mean gleet?

    No, it is okay for the droppings to be a little runnier than usual, especially when it is very hot or when they are under stress.

    OK, thank you. it's not hot, and she shouldn't be stressed, but I guess it's normal, it's defiantly not nasty, by looking at her, i didn't even know she had some stuff in her feathers. She act normal, and is still laying well, so i guess there is no reason to worry. Thank you!
