    Do you put garlic in the wAter? If so do you use fresh or powdered and how much?

    Also do you put cayenne in the feed? Heard it is good for deworming and may have a positive effect on egg production...

    Thinking of trying theses things. Spicy chickens!! Hahaha

    When it comes to important things like health I will always go with a proven medicine such as a worming product in your case. It may work and be a old farmers favorite but medicines are a preferred method for me when I want the job done right.

    I'm not dealing with any worm problems. Just thought it might me used as a preventative and be good for them as well...
