    I read in some book that if you grind chili peppers and feed them to your chickens, their combs will turn bright red, and they'll lay more, better eggs. Does anyone think this is possible?

    Heard of this before: Red pepper promotes blood circulation and is good for killing disease organisms (you haven't heard of it because drug companies can't patent it)

    Check around the health food people and you'll start adding it to your food. therefore it can's be bad for chickens
