Hello,

I have been thinking.
Oh, no! I had a thought. :p

I am going to be building a fence area this summer.
And my thought is that it is a good idea to have a first aid kit.

Now, what I would like in my first aid kit is...
Everything all natural.

What is all natural things for a first-chicken-aid-kit? :D

Okay, let me know!

Thyme and Basil good for respiratory tract health and recovery from respiratory illness, Nasturtium antiseptic and antibiotic properties seeds are deworming, lemon balm is antibacterial, Oregano boosts immune system helps fighter coli, salmonella coccidia,flu etc natural antibiotic.Cilantro is antifungal, chamomile for calming as well as Catnip for relaxant and sedative. Ginger is appetite stimulant and stress reliever...Peppermint, pumpkin seeds for worms and parasite control along with garlic. Dandelion immune support and high in calcium, chickweed for pain relief also high in nutrients vitamins and minerals and Plantain for wound care, imflamation and anti diarrheal..Those are a few...Hope this helps

You can use dried or fresh herbs in nest boxes and dust baths to prevent those pesky bugs too... Hanging lavender helps it smell fresh and repel insects and has calming properties.mint can even repel rodents

I used this bumblefoot salve recipe from Fresh Eggs Daily and it was very effective:

Herbal Bumblefoot Salve

1/2 cup coconut oil
1-2 springs fresh lavender
1 bunch fresh sage
5-6 sprigs fresh thyme
1-2 sprigs fresh rosemary
1 ounce beeswax pastilles
1/8 teaspoon liquid vitamin E
1/8 teaspoon powdered turmeric
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

@Tlmcq, That, I never thought of.
I like that idea. Thank you for these wonderful suggestions!

Do you know if rosemary helps them with anything?
Let me know! :)

I have Rosemary that I am not currently using,
I hope I can use it for them.
