Sustainable Gardening Systems
James Walton “I Am Liberty” Audio in player below!

Sustainable Gardening SystemsIs there anything like eating out of your backyard? I don’t know about you but when I get the change to look out back and see beds of kale, chard, beets and spinach growing tall I am so satisfied. Just having access to your own food is so wonderful. There is the self reliance that goes along with that and of course there are the vast nutritional benefits. I am always preaching about growing your own food and its an incremental process for many.

Raising Meat Chickens

Raising Meat Chickens
Host: Austin Martin “Homesteady Live“ Audio in player below!

Should you raise meat chickens on your homestead?

Raising Meat ChickensChickens are commonly called the “Gateway Animal”, and so it makes sense that Chickens are a great way to get started with raising your own meat. But raising meat birds is not the same as raising egg laying chickens. When the goal of raising your chickens is to put meat in the freezer, you need to consider the breeds, feed, and equipment that you will need to get your birds from the pasture to the plate.

Chicken breeds, which is right?

Chicken breeds, which is right?
Host: Lynna “A Preppers Path

Chicken breedsTo Be or Not to Be-Chickens! Last we talked about whether you really should raise chickens or not, though they are relative easy to keep compared with other types of farm animals raising them isn’t a total walk in the park. Now that we’ve looked not only at the pro’s to the endeavor but also the con’s it’s time to climb another rung on ladder. Next step what sort of chicken do I want to raise, layers or perhaps just meat birds, some actually raise just one or the other and then again others raise both for a fresh supply of eggs and tender, juicy, hormone free delicious home grown chicken meat.

Host: Lynna “A Preppers Path”

raising chickensChickens, the egg before the hen or the hen before the egg? An age ole question and at this stage of the game does it matter?

Chickens snow-300x224Do you ever wonder if your chickens are cold in the middle of the winter?

Raising Your Own Chickens (part 2)

Raising Your Own Chickens (part 2)
Host: Bobby Preparing to Provide!

Raising Your OwnDuring the last show of “Preparing to Provide“, we had a great discussion with Paul Wheaton and several callers. A lot was discussed, with quite a bit of focus on long term objectives. Things like rotating paddocks and free ranging would seem to be the end goal for a truly self-sufficient method of raising chickens. However, not everyone has the necessary space for these methods. And for a beginner, sometimes you have to crawl before you walk. A lot of questions remain. Things like… Where to buy chicks? Is it better to start with pullets? How many chickens can you have per coop? What feed is best at what stage? How to deal with extreme heat and cold? With that in mind, we’re going to go back and fill in a lot of the blanks. Continue reading Raising Your Own Chickens (part 2)

Chickens, raising your own!

Chickens, raising your own!
Host: MHPGardener “Best of Prepper Broadcasting

ChickensWith the cost of eggs and chicken in the stores, and the uncertainty of exactly where they came from or what they have been fed, I’d like to start raising my own chickens. But unlike gardening, I know very little about chickens. I know barbecue wings with ranch dressing make a great snack. And I know that I don’t like my yolks runny. Beyond that, I’m clueless. I have so many questions. What breed is best for egg layers? What breed is best for meat? What is the best method for raising them…free range or a coop? How well do the chicken tractors work? Are there any foods that a chicken shouldn’t eat? How do you take care of them in the winter? I could do some research online and maybe get some answers. But I’d prefer to hear from someone with first-hand experience. Continue reading Chickens, raising your own!
