    So, most of the treats that i give my chickens is scraps from my veggies and dinner leftovers. I checked the "treats list" (which is great, thank you very much!!!!) and didnt see anything that said too much garlic is bad. I put garlic into just about everything and i wonder if it could hurt my babies. They do get treats everyday but they still eat all their layer and regular scratch and food. I figure that i have about 50 of them so they dont actually get too much since there is so many of them but i want to be sure i am not going to hurt them.

    Thanks so much!

    It might alter the flavor of the eggs, but it shouldn't hurt them.
