The beneficial effects of garlic has been noted in growth of birds, feed efficiency, egg production and quality as well as stimulation of immune system and lowering blood sugar when used as feed supplement.
Use 1 to 2% of garlic to diet. For instance, 10grams of garlic for every 1000grams of food.

Give garlic supplement every 15days.
