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.
