I was recently asked if cider vinegar can help prevent coccidiosis,
Just had my favourite bird die of it and not wanting it to spread among the flock.
I am now using wood shavings instead of straw beding to make it easier to clean out and hopefully stop the litter being wet on the floor.
Have read that vinegar in the water helps prevent it, has anyone any experience with this?
I read to use cider vinegar however people I know swear by ordinary vinegar to de-worm so maybe this would help against coccidiosis also?

I am sorry to hear about your favourite bird. I have also heard that vinegar can help. I have just googled about it and found this site that sells cider apple vinegar for poultry.It seems that lots of people on the web use apple cider vinegar for their poultry and game birds. They put one tablespoon per gallon of water. I have read that you need to use real apple cider vinegar.
