Probably not. However, just how "ineffective" the garlic cloves will be depends on the cause of the cough. E.g if it's a simple viral cough, eating garlic will provide some additional vitamin C, which may or may not help recovery. (Medical studies now suggest that vitamin C will only shorten duration of a cold when huge dosages are taken at the very beginning of getting the cold. And even then it will only help in a quarter of cases). However garlic does not contain much vitamin C, or much of anything else useful for reducing a cough.

However if the coughing is due to pneumonia, Asthma, emphysema (or anything more unusual than a viral cough), then garlic will be fairly useless.

Either way, if the cough lingers see your GP/family doctor.

The bottom line is that garlic seems to be great for anything stomach related. Chop up a clove or two, put it on a spoon, and swallow it down. Garlic is a great cure-all for a lot of things but I have found them often to be gut related problems.

when you have a cogh you will need to go to the doctors itn depends on if you have had it for a few daYS

Can chickens eat garlic?

Yes, it's actually very good for them and is used as a natural wormer, a VERY powerful antibiotic, a cure for all kinds of infections - viral, fungal, AND bacterial, a cure and preventive for colds and flu, and many other uses. Garlic has huge potential as a medicine, both with people and pets. Chickens can be fed garlic cloves either whole (if you are feeding one or two birds individually), or can be fed chopped garlic. It's good to soak and store the cloves in vinegar, or make garlic oil (be careful with oil though as it can invite botulism).
