    Hi, I have been reading about ACV and Garlic, I guess ACV should be added at a rate of 1 TBSP per Gallon of water, But should it be given daily?

    Also Garlic should it be added to the food daily? how much?
    What kind of Garlic? I have the Powder type.

    I also use DE, DO these change the taste of the eggs? Thanks

    If you are giving them fresh water daily, I don't think it
    will hurt to add the ACV, are you using Braggs?, or something
    with the "mother"?
    I've read on this wonderful site, that garlic can affect the taste
    of eggs. I don't use garlic, unless it's in something I may give them
    for treats.
    I use DE and have not noticed the taste of the eggs being any
    different. If so, it sure is GOOD!

    I couldn't find at Walmart or my local feed store.
    Health food stores such as GNC. Do you have
    a local farmers mkt? They usually have it.
