new chicken pasture book with trailer winching and oil testing along with goat milking

It's no secret that free range chickens look and taste better than their cooped up cousins, but what type of pasture is best for poultry? Anna's new E- book tackles that question and sums up a huge amount of pasture data that is relevant to chickens. Permaculture Chicken: Pasture Basics starts at the beginning to help you design the best pasturing setup for your flock and specific environment.

Measuring oil viscosity and winching the utility trailer up a hill was part of how we stayed busy this past week.

Have you ever wondered what type of livestock has the best feed conversion ratio? Anna does some math and compared chickens, pigs, and cows in a post titled Mitigating Factors in Meat Efficiency.

Anna Hess and Mark Hamilton are learning new homesteading short cuts everyday they like to share at their blog WaldenEffect.org. You can support their efforts by purchasing one of their unique chicken waterers if you have chickens and care about the purity of their drinking water.
