    I have a pullet 9 weeks old that keeps opening her mouth periodically. I use ACV with the mother in their water. I am putting on tablespoon per gallon of water. I wondering if I need to treat for worms. I am trying to avoid the use of medications in my birds. What does everyone think, should I worm? Am I putting enough ACV in the water for prophylaxis?
