Hello chicken keepers!

Keeping hens healthy is the utmost concern of the responsible keeper. Ensuring that your girls stay happy and flappy means more eggs, fewer vet bills, and that warm fuzzy feeling of knowing you’re doing right by your chooks. Apart from the basics of coop cleaning, great nutrition and quality bedding, there are plenty of egg-cellent tricks to boosting your flock’s well-being.

This weekend, my Mother Hen Tips are all about the fantastic natural benefits of herbs. That’s right - they don’t just garnish a risotto, they’re good for your chooks too! Here is my top 10!

Growing your own herbs is super easy and rewarding. You’ll get heaps of great supplements for your flock, not to mention some mouth-watering ingredients for your signature dish. What are you waiting for? ;)
