[Video] Why Chickens – With Joel Salatin (and friends).
I still can’t believe all that chickens can do for me (and you)…
I’m talking eggs, meat, getting stuff done and connecting to your food.
PLUS! I’m giving you access to my micro-documentary with Joel Salatin, Lisa Steel and Pat Forman.
Go check it out.
What’s Inside the Video:
1) One Reason for Chickens (Food): Eggs and Meat. 4 eggs a week, 6 Ibs of meat.
2) Another Reason (Work): I don’t till, fertilize, buy compost, spread mulch, use pesticides or herbicides.
5 Ways to Put Chickens to Work for You:
Till: Leave them in an area long enough and they’ll till it.
Fertilize: Nitrogen making it a great fertilizer for the garden, yard or pasture.
Compost: Needs oxygen and nitrogen.
Spread Mulch: I use wood chips. I have the chips delivered and let the chickens spread it.
Bug Control: Let them out, no bug problems, one example.
When you sit down to a food you’ve grown, you’ll experience unparalleled joy and satisfaction.
3) Yet Another Reason for Chickens: Getting connected to your food source.
It’s extremely healthy.
It’s great for the bird and the environment.
And if that’s not enough reasons, I bring in Joel Salatin, Lisa Steele and Pat Foreman.
Watch the video to hear their reasons.
Also, in the video, I de-bunk three (negative) thoughts you may be having:
1. I don’t know how to get started.
2. I can’t have them, I’m in the city.
3. I’ll do something stupid.
Write down how many eggs you want a week.
Now, divide that number by four (four is how many eggs you’ll get from one chicken).
Write that number down.
That’s how many chickens you need (That’s your goal).
Here’s an example: If you want 12 eggs a week, you only need 3 chickens!
Enjoy the show.
