    I have 9, 10 day old chicks: I have read that putting apple cider vinegar in their drinking water will be beneficial, which I started to do on Sunday. Does anyone know if everyday is ok or will that eventually harm them. I've heard everything from everyday, once a month for a week straight, once a week every week.

    ACV is one of the best health boosters you can give to chicks/chickens. They can get an overdose though. Only use it about once or twice a week.
