I've read chickens can have garlic, so I was just wondering if I could add garlic to our ducks water.
Duck don't catch chickens diseases. You need an antibiotic for the chickensI'm asking because we think one of our chickens, could have upper respiratory. We isolated her, her eyes are swollen shut and she breathes a little heavy. We were going to add apple cider vinegar and garlic to the rest of the flock's water, but we have ducks so I wasn't sure if we could.
Ducks can and do catch respiratory infections from chickens. Two that they can get from chickens are mycoplasma and cholera.Duck don't catch chickens diseases. You need an antibiotic for the chickens
Have you ever heard of a veterinarian recommending this? All articles I have read say not to feed garlic to birds, cats, and dogs.Yes!!!! Garlic is a great way to keep your ducks healthy. Floating it in there water or mixing some garlic powder in there food is great!
