They love finely chopped garlic mixed in soft butter/margarine tubs .
So are you feeding it mixed with butter or margarine? And how do the eggs taste?
Yes, I am also curious how the eggs taste.
The eggs taste as normal no taste of garlic whatsoever and yes I mix it in with the butter/cooking fat. No sign of any mites so maybe it repels them.
If nothing else, it'll keep the vampires away. We never have enough garlic to spare any for the chickens unless we're sautéing breasts in olive oil, garlic and basel.
Is it safe to feed raw garlic to chickens, Seems I read somewhere it's not safe for dogs just wondering about chickens?
its fine for dogs and does help repel fleas from them so maybe it does the same for chickens
Small amounts of garlic may not cause a problem for dogs but too much can result in hemolytic anemia. Don't know about chickens.
I certainly hope there isn't a problem, my girls have eaten up nearly all the small garlic heads I had set aside on the porch for replanting next month. The prefer it to the scallions, still have some of those. Not being a big deal, I let the girls have at the garlic, and there has been no ill effect or off flavor eggs.
