Oops—I apologize—I posted this in the wrong thread...I’ll see if I can move it. ☹️

I’ve been looking for medicine for my chickens and rabbits...and I should include myself. Is there a big difference in the use of plants across these three animals?  Could something be good for me, but not my chickens?  This is what I need to learn, and maybe even make some charts for my family. 😊

Welcome, Anne!  It’s great to have you here!  What a wonderful way to expand my food forest—I’m looking forward to learning more about medicinal plants! 😊

I’ve been saving seed of especially happy, healthy plants for several years now, but definitely upped my game this year, for the reasons you’ve all shared. I love the idea of applying it to my animals, too. Our heat & humidity is hard on all the creatures living here, so this has given me much to ponder & plan. Thank you!! 😊

We have plenty of citrus here, but the bloom period is rather short. I imagine that would be a factor, too?

So sorry—I am just now figuring out how to access the freebies, but I wanted to say thank you SO much!  This will be very handy when we start up 4H again in the fall, since the kids really wanted to work with native bees. A very rich, informative resource. 😊

Hi Ken!  We have the “rabbit nipples” if that’s what you’re referring to...my rabbits went from the hanging water bottles to the nipples quite easily. I only had to demonstrate for one rabbit, but the rest figured it out on their own. We hooked up ours to a 4” PVC pipe, gravity fed by a 5 gal. bucket. I only top it off about twice a week for 8 rabbits. Hope that helps!

I JUST tracked some rooted cuttings down, and am trying to determine the best location for them. I got one for the people, one for the chickens, and one for the rabbits. I’m looking to create fodder gardens near the animal housing, so those will go there, and I’m thinking the people one will go in the veg garden. Great to know they can handle down to teens—that’s about the worst we’ll get in winter here in NE Florida.
Wanted to ask if they were deep or shallow rooters?  Thank you!

I’ve been using several of his recipes here in Florida, and think it’s helped a lot. I’ve noticed less spotting and better tasting fruit.
I think the garlic and silica sprays are the most helpful. With our crazy weather that jumps from 60 to 90 in a week, it’s hard to use the neem-based sprays. In a more moderate temperature area, it would probably work even better.

Thanks so much for sharing this, Steve!  My rabbiteyes aren’t very happy (just sitting with no new growth) but my Southern Highbush are doing well...do you think it might work with them?
