    I have been seeing alot on putting apple cider vinegar in chickens drinking water, and im thinking about doing that, but im wondering, if ducky "swims" in the ACV water, will it damage his feathers? His "pond" is pretty much the main water source, and im imagining that even if i had a different bowl, he'd still get i it.
     

  2. I think that's a good question, never thought of it. Don't know the answer but I hope someone will. Vinigar is acidic, could it affect the protective oils on the feathers?
