    Anybody know if it is bad to give chickens apple cider vinegar that is 4 years older than the expiration date? And is it ok that it isn't distilled? (the apple cider vinegar is for sour crop)

    The best kind for chickens is not distilled, it is usually organic, with the mother present. Bragg's is a common brand and often found in a standard grocery store.

    Unless it has turned an unusual color or smells like something other than vinegar it should be fine. It never really goes bad if the container was kept sealed.
