    Hi think these are really cool even if they don't work.
    I have done these:

    Pumpkin seeds in butter milk- supposed to act as a natural wormer for small worm loads.

    garlic in water- helps immunties?

    Apple Cider Vinigar in water- Helps Immunties?

    have a missed anything any more cool herbal remadies or supplements? even just Idea don't worry I still use DE and such.

    Thanks in Advance,
    Henry

    The apple cider vinegar helps with digestion too. I even give a bit to my dogs. But the only kind that really helps is the one with "the mother" in it. A few of the commercial chicken farmers I have met at work say that they always add this to some water for their birds to cut down on casulties.

    MArigold will make the yolks orange...

    I think Leyena has the marigold in it and also my birds get lots of grass and that makes the yolks orange.

    thanks Buff
    anyone else?

    Yep, Layena adds marigold. Though I have yet to notice mine being orange this year. When we actually had grass they were bright orange!
