    Not sure about that but I used to use it in their water but not anymore. During the warm weather, I'd have black spots (mold) growing in my containers & the water would be slimy. Thought I was the only one having that issue but have read others with the same problem. I do scrub out my waterers & storage containers but it continues. No idea why but I stopped using it long term.

    I start my chicks off with it, changing the water every single day for about a month, after that I switch them to regular water. I also ferment my feed from the start so figure they're getting benefits there.

    I've read garlic is a good preventative as well as pumpkin seeds but I'll be following your thread to see what others have to say. I'd like to know of some organic wormer.
