    I have heard that putting oregano in water helps the immune system? Any other cool organic tips for chicken health you can give me?

    Most herbs are good for chickens.

    I like a product called Gro2Max. It is a probiotic powder formulated specifically for chickens. I use it in all chicks first water and periodically thereafter.
    I keep bulk feeders in buildings but also ferment their feed. I add some kelp to the FF to boost some of the micronutrients for breeders.

    I have been reading about FF feed. I think I'm going to try it! Thanks for the tip. I think I have seen that gro2max at my feed store.

    Try the website Fresh Eggs Daily, she has some interesting articles and I was just given her book and like some of her herb tips.
