Hi All.

There is a thread in another section of BYP about the benefits of giving your chooks the following herbs and spices - fenugreek, garlic, aniseed, tumeric, mustard powder and ginger. The recommended dose is 1/4 - 3/4 teaspoons in the morning added to the mash.

Edited. Sales advertisements to go in the Sales forum.

Ok so I have been reading up on herbs as a preventative. There seems to be an abundance of herbs that are good for many different treatments. I am about to section of a very large areas of my back paddock for my chickens to free range further. As part of that I want to plant a garden for them to rummage, including herbs, so my question is...has anyone narrowed it down to the best/top herbs to plant in a run for chicken to freely peck at as needed??? I have read that chickens will self medicate on herbs as needed to prevent certain illness/disease, so what do I plant to allow this?

I am looking for a garden as more of a preventative benefit. I am really liking to insecticidal oil spraying for there house, but I am just so overwhelmed with the many herbal remedies to help as a preventative. Any suggestions or recommendations?

I would go with the basics and add interesting ones here and there as you spot them.

The leafier products are more accessible in a garden. Wormwood is a good one to start with. It's usually available at your local nursery and chooks love it. I had two big plants here but they got demolished. I would recommend putting them in a bed that can be protected by mesh or some sort of guard. Then the chickens can eat whatever grows through the mesh but the plant survives.

Is information still being added to this thread?

I am interested in the pros and cons of Goldenseal Herb:
Quote:
Strong antibiotic properties. It has a long history of use in infections including bacterial, viral, fungal, and parasitic. Staph, strep, E. coli, Vibrio cholera, Giardia lamblia,and even tuberculosis bacterium have proven sensitive to this herb.
