    I have copied that from a biodynamic excerpt, but this was before I ever thought that I would be involved in a community that is interested in such things, so I did not put down any source.

    The easiest way is to grind the dried herbs, to moisten them a bit and this way to stick them to another food you feed. In many recipes for “short bowelled” the bitter/adstringent drugs are extracted with alcohol. In this recipe it was just used as is. I know people that work with teas (esp. for chicken that like to sort through their food a lot), but I found that cumbersome.

    One more thing that I have found to work in conditions of diarrhea is the mix that Sonnenmoor has put together: Potentialla anserina, Potentilla erecta (root extract), shepherd’s purse (Capsella bursa-pastoris), Chamomile, Yarrow, blackberry leaves. Here I do not know the proportions, but it is used as an extract, blended with humic substances with very very good results also in other conditions. So it is worth to play around with it a bit,
