It's been cold and snowy the last few days here in the foothills of CO. I've been giving the girls warm (not hot) water the last few days to help them ward off the cold. I'm wondering if decaf herbal teas are safe for them. I've been putting VetRx in their water to prevent colds, but I'm wondering if teas like Traditional Medicinals Gypsy Cold Care would be safe?

Thanks, Sonja

Don't know about that.....I would probably not use combos of herbs but maybe try chamomille, weak tea though? Chickens do eat weeds and some herbs but I don't know if some things would not be good for them...I read a few times that some folks give warm oatmeal or mash with warm water when it's cold out....Maybe that would be an option....
