    I came across a blog on Grit Magazine's website about preventing cocci with ground green tea leaves, plum powder and probiotics (Pediococcus-based probiotics).
    I have always given my flock yogurt, but that is a different culture. Anybody try the tea and plum powder? Apparently it references a USDA study. I thought it was interesting and worth asking about.
    Thanks

    hmmm- That's new to me- most of the articles on here worried about caffeine in the green tea. I'm curious as well if it boosts immunity...
