    Greetings from Kansas, ladyref, and [​IMG]! Pleased you joined us! There are many folks on BYC that go the route you are planning. There are lots of great coop made from recycled or re-purposed materials (pallets, old playhouses, etc.). You can purchase organic feeds, etc. Good luck to you and best wishes.

    [​IMG] I don't know of natural products that really eliminate mites, lice, worms etc. or cure illnesses but, other than that your plans sound doable.

    I "get" what you want to do - my family and I live a very holistic/organic/green/natural-healing life-style. BUT - before you go all-in, ask yourself if you're willing to kill a bird that has gone beyond natural remedies and requires antibiotics - or will you give the antibiotics? If you can answer yes, then I think your plan is do-able. Otherwise, a little tweaking may be needed.
