Pasture rotation

99 cent pasture ebookWe've been experimenting with raising chickens on pasture since 2006. You can read about our early trials with chicken tractors here and our more in depth analysis of creating a forest pasture here. The posts linked to below sum up my experiences with the nitty gritty of pasture rotation --- how long to leave chickens in a pasture, how long to rest the grass between visits, and so forth.
