  1. It’s really hard to keep chickens out of comfrey! If I don’t fence it AND make it difficult to go over the fence, they will eat it right down to the roots! When I started free ranging my girls, they mowed two 10′ rows of comfrey down to 2 plants that survived only because I covered them with plastic crates! I do love comfrey as medicine but never saw a recipe with oregano…although I’m heading out for seeds to start a patch, so I can try it.

  2. yes, but I’m thinking of using olive oil because: 1. I’m a lot more familiar with it (my Sicilian family and heritage) and 2. I’v used it on animals in the past with success.
