Lisa Steele of Fresh Eggs Daily has a great article about how to use herbs with your chickens. And no, I don’t mean how to prepare your chickens for dinner using herbs… I mean how to keep your flock of chickens healthy by utilizing herbs!
I was drawn to these little chicken juggling bean bag things in a local store recently. Eva wanted me to buy some, and like a lot of things they want and I like, I thought “we can make those!” This time I actually followed through and researched some links on how to make them. I found a cute website that had easy to follow instructions and utilized items we already had. I had to teach myself about a “french knot” for making the eyes, but other than that, I was able to easily and successfully make these cute little chicken pyramid bean bags, and now I think I just added a new hobby to my long list of things I like and want to do!
