Permaculture Chicken: Pasture Basics
two new chicken books for your reading pleasure this week. First,
the free one....
Step, Peck...RUN! is a children's picture book I wrote before I
learned to self-publish. It stars Lucy and our first set of
chickens, back when we kept them in tractors.
Rather than selling the
picture book separately, I added it as a bonus at the end of The
If you've bought that ebook on Amazon, you should get an email from
them shortly letting you know that you can download the updated
version for free. If you don't have the Amazon ebook, just
email email@example.com and I'll send you a pdf copy
to read on your computer. There are no strings attached, but I
will add you to my book email list unless you ask not to be included.
The second ebook is more
serious (and is written for adults). Permaculture
Chicken: Pasture Basics sums up all of my readings and research to
make it easy to keep chickens and grass happy together. I'll post
highlights here over the course of the week, or you can splurge
99 cents to get your own copy on Amazon (which can
be read on
nearly any device.)
Here's the blurb:
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!
As usual, I'll also make the ebook free on Amazon on Friday for those
who want to wait for a free copy, and you can email me Friday for a
free pdf copy as well. Thanks for reading (and
double thanks if you find the time to leave a review on Amazon)!
