Dried Lavender in Chicken Coop!

I accidentally ordered 1kg of dried lavender buds, thinking they were dried lavender bouquets!

Lavender buds are really light and so you can imagine how much I have with 1kg…

So I decided (after much googling), why not also add it in the coop.

I tied them into little sachet pouches and hanged 2 in the main coop.

And also scattered a handful into their wood shavings.

The scent is heavenly! And it seems to calm them down quite a bit!

Not sure if it’s coincidence, but I hanged one lavender pouch in the other cage (the outcasted and bullied chick), and the next day, we got our first egg from her!!

Too relaxed? Or just pure coincidence?
