When it is so cold outside, I really try to focus on building our flock’s immune system. Some cold mornings, I do the standard oatmeal and raisins, but lately, I have been doing something a bit different. Yes, I do cook for my chickens sometimes, so before you roll your eyes, let me explain. Have you ever heard the saying that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure?” If my flock gets sick, I am going to spend time, energy, and money attempting to help them get well. How much better is it to attempt to maintain their immune systems so that they don’t get sick? Also, I enjoy doing it, so it isn’t work.
