Just put together a video documenting our system after nearly 3 years without flock of Black Australorps.  I realized just recently I spent $25 the other day on them (sunflower and millet in bulk) and it was the first time I bought food since October.  It ended up being $25 for the last 100 days plus of our chickens being fat and happy... I want to share with a wide audience whats working for us.  It's through barter, compost collecting, systems design inspired by Vermont Composting Company and lots of observing and interacting that this system is really evolving in a living engine.  I'd love to hear peoples thoughts both positive and negative on this...

Amazing! Masterful! Funky Dope!

I just spent an hour in the rain to cycle our fodder room for sprouts (daily) and boy howdy, does this look much better/funner. Very impressive! Everything stitched together and not a glum chicken in sight. Keep it up homeboy, Ill be subscribing!
