Herbal nutritional blend for chickens~Fall/Winter
My chickens have much less to scratch for during winter so I came up with an herbal treat mixture that they love and yours will too. It's also great for summer when it's too hot for them to forage. It's great for baby chicks too. In Fall and Winter I also include Organic alfalfa which encourages laying. You also have the option of adding seed meal, Ground Raw Pumpkin, Sunflower, Chia, Flax, Hemp Seed Meal.

Kelp is an organic kelp meal valuable supplement that provides vitamins, minerals, amino acids and carbohydrates that in general, improve the overall health of chickens. Kelp meal can be fed to baby chicks right after hatch and thorough out the lifetime of the flock.
When kelp meal is fed to chickens it increases egg production and strengths shells and iodine content in eggs.
