    Hi Everyone,

    Does this stuff need to be refridgerated? I had been leaving it on a shelf in my coop so I didn't have to run in the house to grab it everytime I changed the water but it got really, really hot here the last few days so I know the ACV got pretty warm. Will that cause it to spoil or can I still use it? [​IMG]

    Thanks!

    It's more of a supplement, a preventative thing to keep the chickens from getting sick in the first place. It's good for people, dogs, you name it. Do a search on it and you'll find tons of info from the experts in the forum. [​IMG]

    I like to stir a tablespoon or so in a cold glass of water. It really quenches my thirst! It's like lemonade - only vinegar-aid. YUM. My mouth is watering just thinking about it! [​IMG]

    I also drink it in my water, I don't mind the taste at all, some like to add a bit of honey to sweeten it.

    How does it benefit the chickie-brains? I take it myself, but wonder how much to give to my feathered girls. Thanks!

    A tablespoon per gallon is fine

    I put it in the goat's water to keep the algae growth down.
