    If you've ever needed to medicate your flock and have only been able to find what you need in pill form than you've probably had the same problem as me. How to get the pill ground up fine enough. I've tried graters and choppers and even a mortar & pestle and have always been less than pleased with the result. Than I found the very thing in my kitchen gadget drawer, a garlic press. One quick squeeze, punch what remains in the press out with a tooth pick and it's a nice fine powder. Next time try it. [​IMG]

    A fork works good too.

    Not as good as the garlic press and it's a lot more work and takes longer.
