Permaculture Egg Production
Permaculture Egg Production is of interest. Eggs are high quality protein in a small package! The goal is to design a system where the hens thrive on what is produced locally on the land, without external inputs. I am not there yet, but keep getting closer. Our hens have access to green grass, other vegetation, bugs and worms, kitchen scraps and of course their feed. In exchange I get eggs, entertainment, bug control and serious fertilizer. I am working to minimize the amount of feed I provide. So the essential question is: how much land is required to keep a hen alive and what should you do with that land?
