Hi, I am lucky enough to have 3 lovely hens. My girls are 2 gingernuts and one silkie. They all get on well with each other.
I give them tablespoon of cider vinegar with garlic. after reading some comments I have now found out garlic is bad for them. Is it just in the form of fresh garlic or is it in any form.

Welcome to BYC! Please make yourself at home and we are here to help.

To make it clear: Garlic is NOT bad for chickens at all. ACV and garlic are SUPER good and healthy for chickens. Here's an article that I wrote.

So keep it up!

Sounds like you have a lovely flock. Glad you joined!
