I read through several of the posts about using garlic for insect/worm control but I have not seen an answer with a definitive yes for if it does make the eggs taste funny

. I love garlic but I am curious if it just makes the egg taste like crap or not. My chickens do free range but with this upcoming summer of ticks and fleas being the worst ever

I wanted to get a head start in protecting my flock. I plan on getting the DE for their coop will that deter insects if ingested? We have only been chicken owners for less than a year so we are still learning. I have started our dogs on the brewers yeast/garlic chews as well as their monthly dose of flea/tick drops. I really would apperciate any feed back from your experience with using garlic or any other herbs. Koren

I haven't used garlic, but I mix crushed red pepper or cayenne in a couple of scrambled eggs and feed to the girls 1-2 times a month for worms. They are all healthy and lay well.The chickens can't taste the "hot".
