Chicken TractorThe Homestead (3rd) EditionThis is the book that tells you how to integrate small flocks of poultry in with family food production. There is a back to the land movement happening across the world, and it's happening in backyards and on small parcels of land. Chicken tractor systems have become so popular that the term chicken tractor is a household word. This is the definitive book that leads the way.Learn how you can: Raise homestead flocks for eggs, meat and money. Use chickens to create super-rich soils that enablehyper-productive gardens. Easily, step-by-step, process poultry at home. Build custom chicken tractors for your homestead. Make a straw bale coop for your flock. Understand how to select, buy and raise the bestchickens for your goals.Chicken Tractor is a revolutionary, practical, hands-on book that has helped tens of thousands of gardeners create better gardens. It has changed the lives of millions of chickens all across the planet.In a world full of theory and unapplied academics, Chicken Tractor shines as a sterling example of a practical prototype developed by dirt-under-the-fingernails, creative thinkers. The simple elegance in design and description challenge me afresh to smack my forehead and exclaim now why didn't I think of that In our efforts to bring new paradigms to poultry production, we share a common vision, a brand-new ethics of excellence for proper models, delicious food and local profit potentials.- Joel Salatin, Author and Polyface Farmer

If you are brand-new to chicken farming, this book will get you off to a good start. Lee presents good ideas that are easily implemented, and I was able to use my ingenuity and materials at hand to adapt and improve the design to better suit my environment. Very encouraging, and written in a straightforward manner.
