    I was wondering about Kombucha and chickens. I brew it for myself and I wonder if it would be beneficial for them as well.

    I know I've read about putting it into your dog and cat's water.

    The important thing, like with the ACV, is not to put so much in that they don't want to drink.

    I had no idea what to do with mine either...if your birds go for it, I may start another kombucha from a friend...

    It'd be an expensive treat.

    Unless, of course, you brewed it yourself.
