    Hello,

    Just a few quick questions I have for quick answers please?

    - how often should I dust my chooks with diatom powder to prevent lice?

    And:

    - Apple Cider Vinegar - 25mls for 1l of water over 7 days every month to keep worms in check (as well as normal wormer of course)... am I right?!

    Thanks everyone :D

    We regularly de-worm them using Flubenvet medicated feed anyway, though I think we are looking to change. I heard apple cider vinegar helps keep them at bay in the meantime, by altering the pH in the gut slightly, but am aware that it's not to be relied on as a regular de-wormer. Was an interesting read though, thanks :).
