having read about the benefits of garlic powder I bought some for my girls. They accepted it immediately so it obviously tastes good to them. Delivery really quick. Havent been using it long enough to notice a massive difference but if the girls like it then its fine by me.
Well, the chickens seem to like it and their poo doesn't smell as bad as I seem to remember it doing. I think the pot will go quite far, we only use a couple of tablespoons a week and it seems to be enough.
My girls don't like it, they won't eat food if powder is in it.
I TOTALLY under estimated how smelly chicken poo would be and boy, did i get a shock- it hums to high heaven!! I bought the garlic powder after reading all the reviews and I'm pleased to report that it does work really well. The results were apparent after just a day or two and I will definitely continue to use it in the future. Do the girls like it?? Who cares - just as long as I can clean out their coop without gagging. Thanks Omlet!
I have been adding this for 2 weeks and now the bottom of my garden smells like a french restaurant serving snails! I suppose it is a better smell than the poo.
Instead of the strong pooey smell, we now have the constant aroma of garlic. Does the job, but did find it odd explaining Marmalade's garlic breath to the vet!
Works well, chooks like it and seems to keep them spritely. Also makes the Eglu smell like pizza express.
Chickens love it and the coop smells much fresher.
Never realised just how powerful garlic is on your nasal senses when you open the lid.
The chooks appear to like it and it should eliminate that particular smell which poultry poo seems to get!
