Pastured Poultry Profits

Pastured Poultry ProfitsI've been putting off reading Joel Salatin's Pastured Poultry Profits because I have no interest in running a commercial chicken operation.  (To be honest, I've also been annoyed by the tone of some of Salatin's other books, even though I nearly always agree with the contents.)

But I shouldn't have waited.  Pastured Poultry Profits is easy to read and full of handy information for anyone trying to make their chickens healthier on pasture.  Of course, if you want to tractor broilers to sell to your neighbors, the book is a must-read, since it walks you through the whole process from start to finish, leaving very little room for mistakes.  But even if you just have a small laying flock in your backyard, you're likely to learn something from what I'm pretty sure was Salatin's first book.

Perhaps the most powerful part of the bookw as the newsletters Salatin included from the early years of his pastured poultry operation.  It was fun to watch his business grow, to see where he drew the line, and how appreciative his customers were of the quality meat.

Mostly, though, I enjoyed the book because it was full of numbers and specifics.  I'll regale you with some highlights in later posts.  Stay tuned!

Our chicken waterer is perfect in tractors since it never spills in uneven terrain.
