If you have any chooks that seem a bit off-colour try this nat­u­ral rem­edy. Add a dash of Ap­ple cider vine­gar to the flock’s water. This will clean out any bac­te­ria in the chick­ens’ gut. The next day add some nat­u­ral yo­ghurt to the birds’ feed to help re­store the ben­e­fi­cial gut bac­te­ria. This is a rare breed in NZ. It was cre­ated around the turn of the 20th cen­tury in Hol­land, as a lay­ing breed. They are quiet, docile and the hens are good lay­ers of brown eggs. They have black and white barred feath­ers and white legs.
