I've been researching this lately, and found this great Mother Earth News Article about growing your own Chicken feed (including cover crops). http://extension.oregonstate.edu/sorec/sites/default/files/grow_your_own_poultry_feed.pdf

Y'all TOTALLY helped me crush my 1st Kickstarter for my film, "Permaculture Chickens"

That was a little more than two years ago, and I'M BACK!

This time, my family of SIX has converted an old school but into RV so that we can travel America featuring THE greatest sustainable yards, homesteads and market farms.

Paul Wheaton is on the list of folks to see.

So is Curtis Stone, Rob Avis, Diego Footer, Jack Spirko, Greg Judy, Dan Ohmann and on and on and on...

You can see more of the folks we plan to visit, here.

We'll be creating YouTube Videos every single day of the adventure and uploading them to my channel.  

But, we're also creating a feature length documentary film after we're finished.

The documentary will be something you can touch (physical DVD's of the film, T-shirts and Mugs available).

You can watch the documentary in one evening, and you'll see interviews (from us and the farmers we visit) that won't be on YouTube.

Why Kickstarter?

To do all this filming and uploading I'm gonna have to have reliable mobile power and consistent internet access. This can be expensive, but I know the publicity this project will generate will be a HUGE step forward in the regenerative lifestyle movement.

NOTE: I'm offering an incredible deal on the documentary (get the download for just $15). Plus, I'm throwing in video BONUSES only available to my KS backers. Organic T's and Stainless Steel Mugs also available

Back "the Great American Farm Tour" HERE for a deep discount and exclusive BONUSES

Want an idea of what a day on the farm tour will look like? WATCH THIS...

Till with chickens and a broadfork (instead of a machine tiller)

You knew I'd say that one ^^^ so I got it out of the way real quick

Work from home

Home school

Home church

I'm speaking in the short form talks,

Buying gobs of land all around me and permifying the crap out of it.

Oooo.. Or setting up gobs of endowments for passive income, so that I can continually by land and permify the crap out of it.

It was a long time ago, but I kept finding permies.com when researching stuff with on "Mr. Google Pants".

Not long after that, I started including permies.com in my Google searches when I wanted a genuine permaculture answer to my questions.

Hey Cody!

Just discovered your channel through the "daily-ish". Great work.

I'll be following you from now on.

I'm slightly considering doing something similar, so thanks for the inspiration.

Hey Jay,

I should clarify. Daily chores... the ones I mentioned in the video: Letting the birds out/putting them up, feeding them, watering them and getting the eggs takes even less than 10 minutes. I was being conservative there.

Oh my gosh, yes, as you progress you watch for breeding qualities, optimize production, incorporate working strategies and create your own feeding systems.

You have to know, this video "Getting starting with Chickens..." is for beginners. Beginners who ask questions like, "do chickens have to be on flat ground?" or "do they need housing?" These simple kind of things. We've long forgotten all the questions we had when we just began.

I get into a little more advanced stuff with my 3rd video and even more in my movie.

As for the spacing. I give em no more than a square foot inside their "hotel". As it's just that, a hotel. As for the 3 square feet, that's a minimum recommendation I have for folks. For the most part, people aren't near the permaculture complete sustainability mindset... yet.

For complete sustenance off of the land, I say 6 birds per half-acre, but that's not what I'm talking about in the video and it's not who I was trying to help. Over 50% of my fans either don't have chickens yet or they're in their rookie year.

I'm starting at the beginning and walk people through from there.
