    I sure hope I have enough to last all winter. I cut and dried various mints, rosemary, bee balm, lavender and tarragon to sprinkle in the coop during the winter for some freshness. I've put a little in already and you can smell it just a bit...

    Is it for food or odor? U might want to instead look into sprouting if it's food

    Keeping the coop smelling better. Every time they scratch around inside they disturb it and it releases some nicer smells. Although so far my coop hasn't smelled but I'm sure this winter it might.

    might want to read about Sweet PDZ. I have never used it but a lot of people on here really like it for keeping coops fresh.
