Chickens in Permaculture Podcast with Mother Earth News

Kefir faced chickenChicken's role on the farm or homestead go far beyond healthy eggs and meat.  While these things are super important to our family (and most likely yours), chickens bring about a much needed job of composting, tilling, and fertilization that they naturally do.  Last week, I had a blast discussing this very topic on The Mother Earth News Podcast round table with Charlotte Brunin, Jessi Bloom, and Patricia Foreman.   If you would like to check out the entire podcast, you can download episode #60 - I hope you enjoy it! 

On this episode I shared how we set up our chicken house and runs, tunnel system to the woods, and fodder systems.  There is so much detail that goes into each of those topics that I would love to share with you guys.  So for all you visual learners out there, I will be posting pictures, short videos, and more details in the coming weeks on instagram and facebook so be sure to join us there to learn more! 

I would like to send out a big thank you to Charlotte of the Mother Earth News Podcast for including me in such a fun discussion.  If you have not already done so, be sure to check them out!
