    I recently started making my own yogurt since my hens seem to like it so much. I mix it with grains, berries, or whatever I can find. The yogurt has been a little sour for my taste so I decided to try and sweeten it. I had some Agave Nectar that I mix with apple juice and use on grilled meats so decided to try what I had thinking "natural" is best. Since the Agave plant itself is on the list of bad things for chickens, I wonder if anyone has experience with just the nectar used in foods you feed your flock. I used 2 oz in 42 oz of milk. Seems to be small enough amount to not harm the girls? Any feedback appreciated!

    Reality though is chickens don't CARE how it tastes nearly as much as you do
