    It makes sense to me...bit I'm no expert in any way. Thoughts?

    Serves 3 Chickens


    Chicken worming mash, heat, mix and serve

    Ingredients

    300ml Whole Milk
    1/2 a head of Garlic, crushed (added to the milk as soon as it is crushed)
    1 Hot Chilli (finely chopped)
    1/2 tsp Ground Paprika
    1/2 tsp Ground Turmeric
    1 Carrot (grated)
    300 grams layers mash/pellets or your own feed.

    Heat the milk and crushed garlic with the chilli, paprika and turmeric.

    Warm the mix to a serving heat for porridge and then let stand overnight.

    At dawn warm again then mix with 300 grams of layers mix or your own chicken feed and mix in the grated carrot.

    Serve.

    1 Hot Chilli (finely chopped)
    1/2 tsp Ground Paprika
    1/2 tsp Ground Turmeric
    1 Carrot (grated)


    Leave out the mash feed and marinate a chicken in it overnight and then bread and bake or fry. Then you will not have wasted the ingredients.

    As a wormer it would work just as well if you were to put on animal skins, painted your face and shook a rattle at the worms
