Permaculture Chicken: Pasture Basics

Chicken pasturing ebookSeveral of you have emailed to ask about the next installment in the Permaculture Chicken series.  The trouble is that pasturing is a big topic and I got bogged down in the sheer size of the undertaking.  At the same time, Amazon changed their policies so I could only cram about 60 pictures into an ebook if I wanted to keep the price down to 99 cents.

Rather than overwhelming myself with writing a gargantuan tome all at once (and having to boost the price), I decided to break pasturing up into two or three segments.  The first installment, as the name suggests, is the basics --- why grazing chickens is different from grazing ruminants, how pasture plants grow in rotational pastures, and how to keep traditional pastures lush despite chicken scratching.

Next on my writing agenda is a sum-up of our fridge root cellar experiments, but after that I should be back to work on the next Permaculture Chicken installment --- forest pastures, chicken moats, and more.  Thanks for reading!

Hi Anna, I bought your Permaculture Chicken E-Book several months ago. Great work! Very useful and SO WORTH your reasonable price! I am just now rereading it a second time, and you referrence a subsequent book specifically about forest pasturing. Is this one written yet? If it is, I want it! If not, I still want it! Let me know, or put me on a list to notify when/if it comes out. Thanks for sharing what you have learned with the world! -Meadow Scott Cordova, Alaska

Meadow Scott --- Thanks so much for reading! I'm holding off on publishing my forest pasturing edition until I have more solid data, which may take a few more years. In the meantime, you may want to stay tuned to my chicken blog, where I post observations as I make them (or, specifically, to the forest pasture tag.) If you email me at, I'll also add you to my book email list so you'll have updates on new books as soon as they come out.
