Edible Flowers For Your Chickens

Chickens can eat these flowers.  People can eat these flowers, too. At my farm camp we got to eat some of these kinds of flowers, like squash blossoms.  They can be very nutritious!  It is good to feed your chickens these flowers so they don't get sick.  
Nasturtium Squash Blossoms Violets Marigolds Bee Balm Roses Echinacea Clover Blossoms Dandelions Yarrow Sunflowers Apple Blossoms Calendula Carnations Chrysanthemums Citrus Blossoms Elderberry Blossoms Geraniums Hibiscus  Hollyhock Impatiens Lavender  Lilac Pansy Pea Blossoms Peony Phlox Snap Dragon

A Drop in Egg Production



The fireworks that just happened on Saturday may make your chickens not lay as much the next few days.  Fireworks scare chickens and when they are scared they don't like to lay eggs.  To make them feel relaxed and happy you can put some dried herbs in their nesting boxes.  You can also give them treats, cold water and hugs.
There are a lot of other things besides fireworks that can make your chickens not lay as many eggs:
Age Stress Molting Really Hot Really Cold Sickness Broodiness Egg bound Egg Eating Predators Too Many Chickens in the Coop Too Many Treats Not Enough Water Shorter Days
