    Hi everyone! Hope all is well in BYC world! Was wondering everyone's thoughts on mixing poultry Nutri-Drench with ACV for baby chicks while they're in the brooder? I don't want to do something that will harm them. I often find myself over thinking and over analyzing things- by I just want the best for them!
    Please let me know what you think!
    Thanks and take care!:he

    Good Question!
    My only concern is that the ACV will cancel out the effects of the drench. A safe way to go about it would be to use one for a set amount of days and then use the other, or alternate weeks. ACV shouldn't be something you use for an extended period of time, UNLESS you live in an area and use poultry water that is chlorinated, then you should use it all the time to counteract the effects of the chlorine.
    Any sort of drench should only be used for a week at the most, as it is only designed to get chicks started or to boost immune deficient or stressed birds.
    Hope that helps!
