I think that's pretty clear.  Thanks!

We have a mention of exactly that in the description.   Do we need to add a line saying something like "or a combo - deets in the description"  ??



Ah, I missed that but see it now.  Yes, I think if you put "or a combo" in the pledge boxes (down the right hand side), people like me will be less likely to miss it.

I got an error message when trying to LIKE  from the email, but then when I went to the kickstarter page I got a little flash message saying my LIKE had been registered, or something like that.

Based on the live feedback on the KS page it looks like my suggestion is already being covered, but will make it here anyway.  It would be great to have options for a combination of physical and e-books if you can do that without making it super complicated or a PITA to implement.  A single physical copy for myself plus ebooks (for me and to share) would be a great option.

Thanks for all the helpful replies, everyone.  I had some great success, and some fails with growing my own chicken feed this year.  When I have a chance, I will put some notes and photos together for a pretty comprehensive report.

It sounds like the water is aerated with a bubbler.  If this is the case, many of your common garden veggies will do fine, as was mentioned above.  You might want to germinate them in soil but once they get going, transplant with roots in water and they'll be OK.  I have grown fantastic crops of tomatoes, cucumbers, green beans, and a variety of lettuces/greens using aerated fishy water.  Oh, and strawberries.  If this setup is indoors, you will need to look into pollination requirements of fruiting plants.

I give this hatchery 9 out of 10 acorns.  They have a wide variety of chicks, started pullets, and other fowl (turkeys, ducks, geese, quail, guineas, etc.).  Pricing is reasonable and their shipments have always been on time and accurate.  

Sexing of chicks has been very accurate - the counts have been exactly what I ordered.  (They usually include an extra chick with the order, and it has always been a rooster in my experience).    

One shipment I ordered did not come through due to a predator problem at one of their suppliers (for some rare/specialty chickens).  They notified me of the problem and issued a full refund in a timely fashion.  This was disappointing but bound to happen from time to time and I thought they handled the situation very well.

Yeah, I watched this one, too.  Good stuff from Stefan.  

He started ramping up his YouTube channel a few months ago and is now putting out videos about once/week.  Some great permie content.
