Chicken pasturing ebook

Chicken pasturing ebookThose of you who have been following this blog for the last few years will know that I've been reading up on and experimenting with the best way to pasture chickens.  I kept looking for one book that answered all of my beginner questions, and when it didn't turn up, I followed my father's advice and wrote my own.

Pasture Basics is the second book in my Permaculture Chicken ebook series.  For 99 cents, you can take advantage of a decade of experimentation, spiced up with copious photos and diagrams.  Here's the blurb:

Do you want to enjoy healthy eggs and meat from chickens raised on pasture?

Permaculture Chicken: Pasture Basics starts at the beginning to help you design the best pasturing setup for your flock and for your homestead.  Great grazing for chickens won't be found in the perfect pasture for sheep or cows --- you need to tweak your design to match a chicken's unique behavior and stomach.

Included in this volume are an explanation of chicken digestion and behavior, pasture specifics like size and shape, a rundown on which traditional pasture plants chickens enjoy, tips on maximizing plant growth during rotation, and an explanation of how to establish new pastures and maintain existing grazing areas.  Cut your feed costs with pastured chickens!

If you're thinking of raising chickens on grass this spring, this book should get you off to a good start.  Thanks for reading!

Hi - just wanted to let you know we just read your ebook and it is really informative. I have had chickens all my life, trial and error have kept us with a flock. The kids and I want to hatch (culled our flock last fall ) our own this year instead of mail order and your book came at a great time to prepare. Just wanted to let you know its a big help to us! So thank you for all the hard work in research...yes, I am one of those who fear spread sheets too - so glad of the alternative math method! Jessica
