    Meat Bird Pricing

    Hi! I am looking to get a feel to what others are charging for a fully dressed bird? As well as what you charge per pound if you break down the birds and package based on cuts. I currently charge $4.99/pound for a whole bird, but I am looking at expanding my market reach with offering...

    Preserving Your Harvest

    We have a garden that had produced very well this year. In fact, it's our best garden in 6 years and two homes. I have a real passion for growing food we can eat. It's always great to have a salad fresh picked form the garden or cook a meal with fruit and vegetables, and even meat, harvested...

    Sustainability in the garden

    Hi! I want to be 100% self-sufficient in my garden. Does anyone have any tips? Like not going out food shopping unless it's stuff like things I can't grow (bananas, coconuts)? I want to save $, and be able to stay home more. :D (Idk if this should be in self sufficiency or gardening forums)

    Fodder

    So I've never grown my own fodder, but been doing research. I'm wondering though...if I make my trays and then cover them with chicken wire or screen can I give them to the flock and leave them in the tray to regrow after they've eaten what grows above the screen? Also should I use soil instead...
