Because of our shared vision for healthier food and well cared for animals, we have partnered with Lisa Steele, the chicken expert behind Fresh Eggs Daily, to bring you (and your hens!) Organic Coop Confetti: Aromatic Nesting Herbs for Hens. The organic flowers have been used by Lisa for years, and we’re thrilled to soon offer this carefully curated blend for your flock!
Organic Coop Confetti is for use around your chickens’ coop and nesting areas to create a calm, fresh smelling, and restful place to lay their eggs. The pleasant aromatics and essential oils are inviting for both you and your hens. Even better, there are no artificial scents, colors, or preservatives!
Here’s what Lisa has to say about Organic Coop Confetti:
Herbs have been known for many healing and beneficial attributes throughout history, including making nests less attractive to bugs.
I have been growing herbs since long before I started raising chickens. In fact, I have been using my signature dried herb mix for years and using them both fresh and dried for my chickens’ brooder and nesting boxes. I believe that herbs contribute to my flock’s well-being and provide them a healthier environment in which to live and raise their chicks. Partnering with Scratch and Peck Feeds to bring my recipe to a wider audience was a natural collaboration. Scratch and Peck is a company that believes in organic, healthy feed and supplements for backyard flocks, plus natural preventative care instead of pharmaceuticals whenever possible. I knew that they would be the perfect partners to make Organic Coop Confetti.
The herbs included in the mix have all been personally selected by me for their benefits to my (and your!) chickens. Some are aromatic, some offer relaxation benefits, others were chosen to repel pests, and others were chosen just because they look pretty! I hope your chickens will enjoy Organic Coop Confetti as much as mine do. — Lisa Steele, Fresh Eggs Daily
Organic Coop Confetti will be available by summer at local retailers. As always, we encourage you to support your favorite feed store. If unable to buy it locally, though, we’ll have it available online too so you and your flock can enjoy the benefits of our herb mix.
