The Verm-X team were lucky enough to meet so many wonderful dogs at our shows last year, and one in particular caught our eye.

Good Herbs for Chickens

Good Herbs for Chickens

Chickens are known to peck, scratch and nibble throughout the day, so giving your flock access to a variety of tasty herbs is an easy way to keep them happy and healthy.
