Nest Box Herbs for Hens, Organic, Non-GMO 6-oz

Nest Box Herbs for Hens, Organic, Non-GMO 6-oz

Using herbs in a chicken nest can offer several benefits, including:

  1. Repelling Insects: Many herbs have natural insect-repellent properties. Lavender, lemon verbena, calendula, and spearmint are known for repelling insects such as flies, mosquitoes, and mites, which can help keep the chicken coop free from pests.
  2. Antibacterial and Antifungal Properties: Herbs like echinacea, lavender, and calendula possess antibacterial and antifungal properties, which can help prevent bacterial and fungal infections in the chickens and their environment.
  3. Stress Reduction: Chamomile, lavender, lemon balm, and spearmint are herbs known for their calming effects. Placing these herbs in the chicken nest can help reduce stress in the chickens, leading to better overall health and egg production.
  4. Respiratory Support: Echinacea and chamomile have properties that support respiratory health. Their presence in the chicken nest can help prevent respiratory issues and support the chickens’ respiratory systems.
  5. Boosting Immunity: Echinacea is well-known for its immune-boosting properties. By incorporating echinacea into the chicken nest, you can help support the chickens’ immune systems, potentially reducing the likelihood of illness.
  6. Aromatherapy Benefits: Herbs like lavender, lemon balm, and rose petals can provide aromatherapy benefits. The pleasant scents can create a calming environment for the chickens and may also help mask any unpleasant odors in the coop.
  7. Natural Egg Production Stimulant: Some herbs, such as calendula, have been suggested to have properties that can stimulate egg production in chickens. By incorporating these herbs into the nest, you may encourage higher egg-laying rates.
  8. Natural Cleaning and Deodorizing: Many of these herbs have natural cleaning and deodorizing properties. Lemon verbena, lavender, and lemon balm, for example, can help keep the chicken nest smelling fresh while also potentially aiding in cleaning.
