Freezing herbs for a winter treat for your chickens will make you a super star in your flocks eyes. The herbs and flower you freeze will be a welcome treat that will boost their immune system and overall health.
If you have chickens, you’re probably aware of how they can become treasured homestead livestock. You care for them and they provide eggs and eventually meat. You want to make sure your chickens get the best nutrients possible.
Unfortunately, it can get a little hard to find fresh greens and herbs for chickens in the winter, when they have to depend a lot on feed for their food. If you’ve found this to be a problem with your chickens, you’ll be happy to know that this tutorial is the solution to your problem.
It’s quite normal to dry a few herbs, greens, and edible flowers for chickens to munch on during the winter, especially since these will help them stay healthy. However, if you want to go the extra mile and provide a little treat every now and then, you should consider freezing that greenery during the summer so you can thaw it and give it to the chickens every now and then. With winter around them, they’ll find fresh greens to be quite a treat!
