Chicken Incubation

Incubation HandbookI've been experimenting and researching for quite a while to figure out how to hatch more healthy, homegrown chicks with less drama.  I summed up all of my newfound knowledge in a 99 cent ebook --- Permaculture Chicken: Incubation Handbook.

The book walks beginners through perfecting the incubating and hatching process so they can enjoy the exhilaration of the hatch without the angst of dead chicks.  92 full color photos bring incubation to life, while charts, diagrams, and tables provide the hard data you need to accomplish a hatch rate of 85% or more.

And if don't you want to spend a buck on the ebook, there's still plenty of useful information in the related blog posts below!
