Saving Money Tips for chicken keepers

by Linda

Tips for saving money and for healthy chickens:

A dose of apple cider vinegar in the water once a week helps to keep chickens healthy (the cheap horsey one works just as good as the more expensive ones)

Eye infections try bathing with cold tea first - worked for us and much cheaper than Tylan and a trip to the Vets(which didn't work).
Blocked crop - Natural yoghurt and/or a drop of olive oil and garlic and a massage 2 -3 times a day.

Also a friend of mine uses oddments left over in herb and spice jars to add to her hens food when she buys replacements and swears its what keeps her hen healthy!
