 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. Our first incubator was a cheap styrofoam box, and we now know why that was a bad choice for our situation and why it was worth it to upgrade to a more modern version. 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.

Mark Hamilton and Anna Hess have been homesteading in Southwest Virginia for over 6 years now, and have started to share some of the trials and tribulations of figuring out permaculture solutions to growing quality food at their blog they call If you've got chickens then maybe you might consider giving their new poop free automatic chicken waterer a try. DIY kits start at just 15 dollars.
