Pastured poultry is a sustainable agriculture technique that calls for the raising of laying chickens, meat chickens (broilers), and/or turkeys on pasture, as opposed to indoor confinement. Humane treatment and the perceived health benefits of pastured poultry are causing an increase in demand for such products. Joel Salatin of Swoope, Virginia, helped to reintroduce the technique at Polyface Farm, and wrote his book Pastured Poultry Profits to spread the idea to other farmers.

I have been studying this book and am making my first go at raising chickens this way; this book is well written, easy to read, enjoyable and the directions are clear. So far I think we are doing well with our chicks and by the end of this week we'll be moving them into the chicken tractor.

8 weeks later we did raise 60-something cornish-x's successfully; thank you Joe Salatan!
We did use this book as our "bible" using it very often to check weather issues etc ... we moved our chickens three times a day.

I read a review that said the book is disorganized, and it is a bit choppy; it has been written over many decades and so plan on taking notes & marking important passages, but I do feel it is an important book and it gave my husband & I the pertinent information to successfully raise a very healthy flock - and let me tell you, these are beautiful healthy birds! We'll be sad to see them go, but next year we'll run 2 tractors and run them twice.

uses many of the same chapters as the other books, so make sure you're buying it for the right reason. If you have "So you think you can farm" in your library, I recommend a different purchase. I applied much of the Salatin model in my straw box garden last season and had great success here in Utah--using less water than the year before, but harvested double. Bio-diversity efforts to build soil (maintaining microorganisms) adds to Salatin's concepts of "grass farming." In the West, there is less water than soil and no shortage of sunshine and heat. Salatin does a great job of risk management for farming for our conditions. You can't go wrong by applying the techniques outlined in his methods.

Joel Salatin gives you everything you need to start raising chickens for profit! This is a quick and easy read because his writing style is so conversational and intriguing. He gives you the science and business details without boring you to death. You’ll find yourself ready to run out and buy some chicks immediately.

Superb.

Joel Salatin lays it all out. We use the ration for layers all year, from chick to adult.

We realized feeding less and butchering at a lower weight was a much better mode of operation.

First year of following this, 33 chickens, not one death. 6-7 weeks old at butchering, 3.5-4.5lbs. dressed chickens. Completely positive experience.

Second year 110 chickens, nearly twenty deaths (overfed- heart and lung failure, perhaps acidosis?) 7-8 weeks old at butchering, 4.5-6lbs. dressed chickens. Once we realized we were feeding too much we slowed down deaths, and eliminated them but it was scary to see so many lost. Online communities can really help diagnose.

This book is an extremely useful and comprehensive reference tool. From shelter to butchering, marketing and value. Joel Salatin will pump you up and let you believe in honest food and your part in it. Anyone can do it. I recommend you do it. We started on a quarter acre in a suburb allotment, the heavily treed backyard of my parents. They did so well we moved out to a farm 15 minutes away the next year. If you could raise the birds at your home it would be extremely appealing, to an even greater degree because the constant contact and supervision you could exercise. Still, even being removed from them, it was a great experience.

Some of the conditions have changed, internet is now a great tool for marketing. It may be a little more to regulate according to your government but this book needs very little updating, just start. You will make your own adjustments and find it satisfying.

Extremely informative, detailed, and even fun to read. If you know who Salatin is you probably know what you are buying here. Amazon is going to make me write a bunch more stuff because they won't post brief reviews. I'm quite good at lengthy, but I think it's abominable that I am not allowed to be brief on those few occasions when all I want to write is, "Extremely informative, detailed, and even fun to read. If you know who Salatin is you probably know what you are buying here."

I give this book a 5 because of the authoritative approach and the common sense experience relayed. Mr. Salatin is genuine and practical on all the facets of homegrown & processed chickens.

Truly speaking from experience Joel writes a detailed book with practical explanations to make even the most city of folks able to make money with poultry. I personally bought the book to learn more about what pastured meat really is and what it takes to raise chickens humanely. My friend however borrowed my book, followed the advice, and about 60 days later our family and his were processing chickens. He pre-sold all of his first batch and it was a great way to make some side money for the family. Due to customer requests, he is starting another batch this week. This book really does work which is why I gave it 5 stars.

However, the book touts making $25K in 6 months on 20 acres but when you read the book you soon learn that is with TWO people working (modeled as husband/wife team in the book) and working nearly EVERY DAY for 6 months so you might want to keep those profits in perspective. Also, even the book admits your will have to count as loss if a fox, coyote, or other animal gets in your pens. Additionally the model of Joels pens does NOT work if you ground is greatly sloped or rocky (just ask our friends in New York) but it gives a good launching point for creativity. Overall, raising your own brood if you have some space means YOU are in control of what you eat and the book is written in such a friendly, easy-going way it nearly guarantees success.

With all the hormone and antibiotic injections and all other nastiness (like 30% of fluid in your store-bought chicken is chicken feces) that comes with comercial/large chicken farms as both mentioned in this book and published in reputable literature buying pastured poultry is worth the extra $$ for our family. It truly does taste different and we find we don't need as much on our plate to feel full. Overall this book was inspiring and made me appreciate the hard work of my local farmers/ranchers even more.
