WHY put apple cider vinager in the water? plz explain
Many people add ACV to keep algae (spelling?) from forming. My husband says it's also good for digestion, but I don't know if he read that here.
ACV is an acidifier which helps in calcium absorption and lowers gut PH to help with bacterial issues.
If you want to see all the benifits of ACV goggle it,its great for us as well as animals.Make sure you use the ACV with the mother in it.Its also good for worms my chickens have never had worms that I know about.I allways put 1 tabl. to one gallon of water
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple Cider vinegar is rich in the vitamins, minerals and trace elements found in apples, especially potassium. It will normalize pH levels in the stomach, improve digestion and the assimilation of nutrients.
A few more benefits of Oral Apple Cider Vinegar are:
Reduces intestinal and fecal odors.
Aids in digestion.
Helps to break down minerals and fats.
Assists the animal to assimilate proteins.
Assists the animal to convert food better.
It lowers the pH of the digestive tract which
will make an environment less welcoming
to pathogens therefore will reduce common
infections and increases resistance to disease.
Improves stamina and fertility.
It is a great overall tonic that will improve the general well being of the animal.
If started while Birds are young (1-1/2 to 2weeks), birds
Will feather out quicker.
Grow to their potential sooner when used with an adequate feed.
I find the meat is also leaner due to the fats being converted quicker.
Do not use metal water dishes (except stainless steal).
Vinegar should not be used internally with animals that have an irritated lining of the intestinal tract.
Add 1/8-1/4 of a teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar to every 4 fl ozs of water, or 1/8-1/4 cup per gallon of water.
Can this be the Apple Cider Vinegar you can buy in the grocery, or the Organic type?
You want the type with the "Mother" in it. You can find it in some grocery stores. It's usually in health food stores or places like Whole Foods. Organic & Unfiltered.
Quote:It's the organic type, e.g. the "Bragg" brand and says "with the Mother" on the bottle. Some grocery stores in my town carry it. You can also get it on Amazon.
Quote:You can use any Raw Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar with mother. (It doesn't have to be organic)
There are other brands out there also just remember you will want Raw Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar mother.
Question. will ACV clog nipple waterers? I mean with Mother in it. What a weird sentence. thanks
