Each year I make it a point to plant Nasturtiums, a lovely entirely edible herb, near the chicken coop. This year, I have had to plant them three times as other little critters beside the chickens have found them to be absolutely delicious. The chickens love them. I happen to think that they smell and taste like capers. It never takes long for the girls to notice when I push the stalks up against the wire of the run. Oyster Cracker, my little piggy, always comes over first to take a nibble. Planting herbs for hens is a wonderful way to keep them happy when they can’t free range and also provide a nice source of shade from the summer sun.
