    Does anyone know if putting a small amount of lemon juice in the water supply is helpful or harmful? The ACV issue seems to have varying thoughts.

    I've read that citrus fruit is not recommended for chickens, however I'm no expert. I do however use ACV w/Mother in my water.

    Fresh water, no additives! There's no reason to adulterate water with vinegar or anything else, for normal use.
