    I have an Australian mint bush in my back yard, and we love it... but I'm wondering if it would do harm to give some to our hens. I don't even know if they'd touch the stuff, but I want to make sure it's alright before I even try. [​IMG]

    Do a search on mint. Someone planted some today and they could tell you!

    Mint is fine but too much will cause the eggs to have an off taste.
