Garlic for chickens? - Page 5

post #41 of 44
We have been doing garlic powder in their food in small quantities based on a recommendation from a book that I read. The poster who said it eats metal though has me concerned. Their feeder is metal. Is that just mixed with water?

It may be both but I do know that the eggs will taste like garlic or if I feed them onions their eggs will taste like onions but I believe that it's only for things that are strong scent it won't do it to everything they eat so don't get worried

I have given my chickens onions and my eggs don't taste like onions.  Most of the chickens will not touch the onions they just pick though the scrapes and leave the onions alone.

Mine aren't laying eggs yet, but obviously I'd be concerned about zinc poisoning, so I guess I'll switch feeders even though I'm not a big fan of plastic either.
