It boosts up there immunity right? sorry I cant remember what it does.
Keeps mosquitoes away. If humans and animals eat onions/garlic, we aren't so tasty to mosquitoes and other biting bugs. It may have other uses, but that's the one I know.
I read that if I give it to them straight the eggs will taste funny.
oh not just mosquitos. It keeps away vampires!
They might not drink it with garlic in it. Garlic and Onions are about the only things chicken won't try to eat. It also may make the eggs have a slight garlic to them.
Just about everyone on the Yahoo Organic Chickens group puts garlic in thier waterers. They claim no adverse egg taste. The chickens definitely drink it..... you might want to ask over there:
I don't know about garlic. I heard it's a natural antibiotic tho.
As for the onions, my girls love them. We never noticed any flavor difference in the eggs, but we always add onions to the eggs when we cook them anyway.
For my 12 ladies, I give them 4 large cloves of garlic in their evening snack every evening. The eggs do not taste like garlic and the girls flip out over this treat made with garlic, yogurt, and leftover powdered feed from their feed tray. The garlic is pressed and mixed into their snack. Sometimes I chop up some type of veggie and toss it in the snack too.
Garlic is a natural antibiotic. It also helps to control fleas and flies.

Thank you all for the info. I am going to get the raw apple cider vinegar and add the garlic to the waterers and to there snacks
