Just Finished New Ebook On Chicken Egg Incubation

 Permaculture chicken egg incubation ebook handbook guide Brinsea We've got a new Ebook series coming out called The Permaculture Chicken, and the first installment is a handbook on incubating chicken eggs at home.

Learn from our mistakes at the bargain basement price of just 99 cents, and if that's too high for you send us an email and we'll see what we can do about getting you a free copy during this introductory week.
