Hello to all! :)
In Italy some breeders use to make a garlic macerated to give the birds against intestinal parasites. Do you do this too?

Can anyone help me please.
I have read that garlic is a wormer and you can sprinkle it on feed or add to water. How often would you do this for? And does that mean that I don't have to use Flubenvet anymore?

month
Also I put ACV in their water every month for a week. Can you use the garlic at the same time?

Yes, absolutely. I put minced garlic in their water and also if one is sick I mince it in water, let it sit and give it by eye dropper. I have saved some of my girls doing this. Garlic is my go to, it is anti bacterial, anti parasitic....excellent!!

Should be able to get garlic right at your local grocery store. Just have to cut it up. I've never bought garlic so it will be an adventure for me too soon as I can get to town to buy some. I know there is the already dehydrated kind you can buy at the grocery store too. Its with the rest of the spices. Not sure if it has the same effect or not. Someone else on here that uses garlic will most likely be able to let us know MrsRoeder.

Yes, you can get it at the grocery store. As my gralic didn't do well this year, I'll be doing the same thing. Some people add the dried dehydrated powder, with good luck. I like the dried small chunks, either way when you feed the chickens just put a good sprinkle in top.

I don't think, however, garlic will work against colds.. : (

I use fresh garlic.I cut some pieces and put them in a bottle of water.I leave it closed 2-3 days and if you open it,it smells indeed very! : D lol
Then I put it in the bowl of hens and they drink it.
But I just let that water available. Because some hens may prefer the water they drink usually

I should have mentioned to get the cloves of garlic and not the garlic that is already minced in a jar. I have a garlic press and that is what I use to mince the garlic. If you don't have one just chop it up very fine.

That's where I got my garlic press Energyvet and like you I love it. The main thing is, if you are treating a sick chicken you want the garlic to be freshly minced as that is when the compounds in it are the most potent! Some people put it in the chickens water as a wormer, my friend uses the garlic powder and puts it on their food. Garlic is wonderful for both chickens and us. I use it regularly :)
