More chicken health: a first aid kit

Backyard chickens are pretty easy to keep as a rule and most go thru life without a hitch. that being said, stuff happens! We have to do some minor doctoring from time to time. And occasionally, we have some trauma injuries that must be treated. Because of this, we created a first kit specifically for our birds. Nothing fancy or expensive, but it can really save the day when you and your special lady friend are in a tight spot. So below is our list of recommended items. Most are available at your feed store (including Fresh Start) and the local pharmacy. Just get a nice clean box to keep it in and put it somewhere handy…

Wound Treatment for Chickens

Hey chicken keepers! What a fine thing keeping chickens is, right? Day to day it’s pretty easy but from time to time we encounter problems like a wounded bird. What to do?? Easy peasy lemon squeazy! Here are some tips and a first aid list that will empower you and keep your flock healthy. Skin wounds The most common injuries with chickens are hen pecked hens…or an over aggressive rooster lover. Pecking and biting and scratching can leave bare spots on the skin that can get infected or invite more pecking from other hens.

Organic Cover Crop

Organic cover crop is one of the best things you can do for your garden. Suppress weeds, add nitrogen and organic matter, reduce erosion, increase water retention, and promote beneficial biology organically. We are selling quite a bit of organic cover crop seed this year to homesteaders, farmers and gardeners. It is clear that most get the benefits – increased organic matter, nitrogen fixation, erosion control, beneficial insect support, and reduced need for fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides.

Canning and Pickling. Food Preservation

One of the most rewarding parts of planting your own vegetable garden is having fresh, organic produce. Nothing beats the taste of a tomato fresh from the vine. And I get really excited for those months when fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers are just a quick walk out the front door. For someone who loves to cook (and eat!), produce from the store can’t compete with the flavor and diversity of the ingredients straight from the garden.
