ACV, garlic and other 'supplements'? - Page 4

post #31 of 35
@Tika75 garlic and onions can cause oxidation of red blood cells leading to anemia if you overdo it. Just don't feed it everyday or by the bucketful and they should be fine.

Oh and it was an interesting read about the garlic too wink.png

No editing, he talks.   A lot!!!  They are actually in the same family as minah birds, who are well known for their talking.  Pretty much any starling who imprints on humans will talk to one degree or another.   I don't have batteries for my camera and I need to get pics of our new chickens and a new one of Zeki since he's learned a lot of things since that video I posted.

 

I love talking supplements, even though I'm rather skeptical without a good study done.  But even if there isn't one, if I am convinced it won't harm, at the very least it might help a little, give some added nutrients and perhaps discourage pests so I'll give it a try.

On cinnamon, it will help with ants, but I don't think it will help rodents.  Use cayenne if you want to discourage both.   It's the hot that keeps the rodents away, I think you'd have to use a ton of cinnamon which would be expensive.

 

Ok my daughter found an older video of Zeki when he was just getting adult feathers and learned Zeki is such a pretty bird.

Sorry for interrupting your thread!  wink.png

No no... not at all! I'm still in awe! I love it! xD
