Hello chicken keepers,
As devoted Mother Hens and Chook Dads, it’s so heartbreaking when our chickens get sick or fall prey to poultry parasites and pests. Keeping my chooks happy and healthy is my top priority and I’ve learned the hard way that prevention really is better than cure when it comes to poultry health problems.
Over the years I’ve tried so many poultry health products, prevention methods and natural remedies to keep my chooks cluckin’. After refining my top 5, I combined my favourite chicken health products into one easy Hen Health Kit that you can use too! Every component is tried, tested and worth its weight in eggs for keeping chickens pest and illness resistant.
Let’s have a peck at what I use to keep my hens healthy...
