What benefit do you find with the cider vinegar? I work for a company who sell organic cider vinegar - but I've never given it to my birds.

as far as I know it helps acidify the digestive tract, thus it reduces any chances of harmful bacteria, fungus, etc... developing

and it's one of the best food preservants, if you sprout or slice greens for the birds... it lasts longer in the bowl

Run a forum search on cider vinegar, some of the vet early posts...
/I had a therory decades ago about acedic acid (vinegar) and worms, mites, bactria etc
We also use microscope/saline soln check for worms on a regular basis.
Pre vinegar spray and apple cider vinger like all captive birds, cows sheep etc worming was an issue.....
I experimented with my therory and other than new birds coning in , going into islolate and being dosed and repeat does of invermection etc...we have never had worms or mites....also varified at massey university testing.
