Chives do not dry well "naturally" as most other herbs do, they tend to turn yellow if left hanging in a cool dry place which is what you can do with sage, oregano etc.

I had great luck last year with a dehydrator. The chives were dry within a day or two and they were still dark green. It also worked with dill, which is also hard to dry without turning yellow.
