    I give my laying flock ACV in their water every Monday. Its the Braggs with mother in it. My wife has caught the chicken bug big time and decided that she must have her own flock, coop and run area! Long story short she likes bantams and rare looking birds. So we have 2 blue silkie bantams, 2 partridge silkie bantams, 2 black frizzle cochin bantams and 2 white frizzle cochin bantams due to hatch and ship next wednesday the 11th. I have heard that acv helps with pasty butt and was going to start them on it, is that ok. These will be our first bantam birds so any other advice would be great too.

    I give my day-olds ACV. Actually, everybody but the dogs and cat get ACV in their water at least once a week.
