    I guess this is the right section to post it in. The article is written from a Permaculture perspective by Paul Wheaton. I really like his take on it and the idea of incorporating rather than isolating chickens in our other food growing processes. Just wanted to share it

    That's a fantastic article, I have not gotten all the way through it yet, but exactly the kind of things I've been trying to figure out. I wish I'd read it before I build my too expensive and heavy coop/run!
