Cold, Rain, and Death on the Homestead...When Things Go Wrong

127.5K views July 2nd

If you've ever wanted to raise backyard chickens for eggs, you'll want to catch this episode of the Pantry Chat. 

Raising chickens has been a staple practice of homesteads large and small for thousands of years. Our beautiful birds give us so much, from scratching and fertilizing the ground as they move across the property, to delivering that perfect unit of food called the egg.

In this episode, we're diving deep into the art and science (and love) of egg-laying chickens. This is one of the topics we get the most questions about, so take a break from the garden for a bit and tune in to this mini masterclass on raising chickens for eggs!

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT RAISING MEAT CHICKENS

80.6K views June 14th

What is the deep litter method when it comes to raising backyard chickens? It's a way to keep healthy, happy chickens in a stink-free coop (no ammonia smell) by piling up shavings into a deep bed on the floor. If you use this method, the deep bedding also creates garden-ready compost simultaneously. 

Join me with Harvey Ussery as we discuss everything you need to know about getting started and maintaining the deep litter method in your chicken coop.

For more information, visit the blog post here: https://homesteadingfamily.com/deep-litter-method
