    I had some ornamental garlic plants where the run is now located. Hubby thought he had gotten all of the plants, but one came back up and my two hens have eaten on it. Will it hurt them or the eggs? Thanks!!

    From what ive read It seems as though the eggs could have a slightly different taste, but it wont last for long because it will be out of their systems fast. If they just ate the top plant and not the bulb it shouldn't have too bad of an effect, its the bulb that will be the most "garlicky".
