    Hi everyone!

    I want to keep my hens chemical- and toxin-free. I was wondering if there are any HEALING herbal remedies or PREVENTATIVE herbal remedies that you use to keep your hens healthy?

    Here are a few of my questions:

    1. What are your favorite herbal healing remedies for your chickens?

    2. Which herbs do you regularly give your birds (if any), and why?

    3. What are some of your favorite non-toxic remedies for ailments such as: coccidiosis, mites, lice, sour crop, worms, poisoning, external/internal parasites, or reproductive issues, like egg binding/internal layers, etc.?

    4. Do you have any hand-me-down remedies from generations past?

    And don't worry, I know ALL about DE [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone!
