Henkeeping: Products for natural health & wellbeing

Here are a few products that we couldn’t live without or at least our chickens couldn’t….. Natural remedies for parasites, mites and overall good health.

Diatomaceous Earth

IMG_1182Really good stuff! 100% natural and totally safe for humans and animals. A very fine dust made from tiny fossilized water plants that red mites and parasites loathe! We puff it into the nooks and crannies of their coop, we puff it into their feathers every few months and we puff it into their green mash every week. Can be used internally and externally.

Daily Hen Health

IMG_1181Great to add to the girls water for overall health and wellbeing. Contains apple cider vinegar, cleavers , nettle, calendula, dandelion leaf and root, milk thistle, seaweed, garlic, thyme and oregano. The herbs have been carefully selected for their ability to help maintain the hens health all year round and to support strong shells, support resistance to internal parasites, assist in the moult, support digestion, liver and kidney function and provide vital vitamins and minerals. Brilliant!

Another great product for controlling parasites. The pellets are 100% natural and help maintain all areas of intestinal hygiene whilst being gentle on the hen’s gut and digestive system. We add it to their feed for 3 consecutive days once a month and it’s totally fine to continue eating their eggs during treatment.
