Chicken supplies giveaway

Chicken freebiesAre you thinking of adding chickens to your homestead this spring? Or perhaps you want to expand your flock and make sure their run doesn't turn into a muddy mess? I have two books that should hit the spot, one free and one on sale today!

Pasture Basics is the freebie, full of everything I've learned about rotational chicken pasturing over the last few years. Then, if you like what you read in book one, you'll want to be sure to pick up Thrifty Chicken Breeds while it's marked down to 99 cents since this companion book will help you choose the right type of chicken to put on your new pasture.

And, to make this a true chicken-giveaway week, one lucky reader will walk away with a free premade EZ Miser, our favorite type of waterer for pastured poultry. Just share why you want an EZ Miser (or why you love the Avian Aqua Miser or EZ Miser you've already got) on facebook, twitter, or google plus, click on the giveaway widget below, and you'll be entered to win!

I have been looking at your EZ Miser more closely lately, as we are in California and are anticipating another hot dry drought summer. Water conservation is going to be the hot topic of the year. Looks like the EZ Miser would help conserve the chicken water.

Nice idea. I don't tweet, I hate Facebook and Google+ and "social media sites" in general, and that kinda leaves me out in the cold. :(

One out of three aint bad! I love the concept and think its probably the best solution available for our-sized homesteads!
