If you haven't noticed, our Junior Blogger has taken a bit of a break from blogging this summer due to her very fun, busy schedule. She intends to return, but we have decided to add another blogger to our line-up.
So without further ado please welcome our very own Miss Nelly Dean!
For those of you who don't know Nelly, she is our sweet, friendly Buff Orpington hen. She is the star of our social media pages such as Facebook and Instagram and has her very own children's book series, Chicken Boots. Nelly is here to blog about tips, recipes, fun facts and more. We hope you enjoy her posts each week!
Homemade Electrolytes for your Chickens and Pets
By Nelly Dean
The summer sunshine and heat has been a great change from the soggy season in the Pacific Northwest, but the 100 degree temperatures day after day are really getting to me and my flock. We love it when our owners provide us cold water, frozen treats and shade, but did you know that us chickens really appreciate it when you add electrolytes to our water? It replenishes nutrients and minerals we lose in extreme heat. Here is a recipe that I like. Give it a try. Your chickens will thank you!
Thanks for reading!
