so they will really eat the sliced garlic~? i thought they wouldn't like the taste of garlic and they'll just reject it. . thanks for the reply @AZCorbin!!^^We use to put it in the water until we got new waterers and decided to put it in the feed as not to stain the waterers. You will never get that garlic smell out. We dice it up to a small pea size and layer it on the feed. They love it. It will all be gone in no time!
FWIW they had no problem drinking the garlic water as I have heard some say.
hey i was thinking exactly the same as you are!! when i was mincing and slicing some cloves of garlic for some of my pigeons yesterday i was thinking what if i'll grow some garlics on our veggie garden~!!^^Yeah they love it, I was surprised too but they have no problem eating it and seem to really enjoy it. I have heard the same from other members on hear too. I will be growing it soon enough for them!
