The Permaculture Chickens Film

Raising Chickens with nature, from hatching to the plate!

I will show you how to raise your own chickens with nature (aka save you money and be more sustainable) really really fast… like in one evening. Featuring exclusive interviews with Joel Salatin, Pat Foreman, List Steele, and Jim Adkins - all chicken ninja masters in different areas to help you master it all!

Years ago my beautiful wife and I were talking at church when she said, 

“we ought to get some chickens”. 

No lie, a minute later someone walked by and said, “do any of you want some chickens?” 

Shocked and excited we had to say, “YES!” 

BUT (and that’s a BIG but) we knew nothing about raising chickens. 

#PrettyMuchCluelessAboutRaisingChickens 

How hard could it be, right? 

Wrong. 

That night we put our 4 adult chickens (affectionately called Uno, Dos, Tres and Cuatro, in honor of our recent stint in Honduras) into a vacant horse stall. 

Tragedy struck yours truly (aka the uninformed and ill-prepared wanna-be chicken man). 

Tres and Cuatro flew the “coop” within the first hour, as we underestimated their flying ability. 

I chased them, but had no idea how to actually catch a chicken. 

They were lost forever :( 

Doubts set in. Maybe growing our own chickens wasn’t for us. 

However, we trudged on and more chickens joined the ranks of Uno and Dos. 

Sadly, everyone soon found their way to “chicken heaven” by hungry predators. 

Determined, I put massive (perhaps ungodly) amounts of effort, time and money 

… and something surprising happened. 

I got good (real good) at raising my own chicken and eggs.


If you don’t know what you’re doing, the road to success can be overwhelmingly difficult (and expensive). 

But you don’t have to learn the hard way. 

Raising chickens can be easy (if you have the right help). 

I learned through books and hard knocks but longed for something better. 

If only I had someone I could trust to help me in a more “personal” manner. 

I’ve created something special that I didn’t have… 

A feature-length film where I show you everything you need to know for raising your own chicken with nature from hatching to the plate. 

The overwhelming majority of folks prefer to learn new things with video! 

Not books, or the internet or even one on one coaching.

I included four of the best Chicken experts known to man (or woman). I bet you’ll recognize some of them.

Joel Salatin

Pretty much the “BIG daddy” of the sustainable food movement.

Yep, I went to his farm for a 2-hour interview and spent 2 days filming the commercial chicken operation.

Jim Adkins

Jim Adkins of the Sustainable Poultry Network will teach you how to breed your own flock for 100% sustainability.

Pat Foreman

Author and Speaker Pat Foreman is the “City Chick” and shares a wealth of information on backyard chickens. 

Lisa Steele

Author, Lisa Steele, of the insanely popular Fresh Eggs Daily showcases her backyard operation and will teach you about using herbs to boost immune systems and overall health of our flocks.

Here’s What Others Are Saying About the Film:

“Sweet! I’m in! What’s the investment?” 

First of all, I’m not going to lie to you (or rip you off). 

Why?

I want to build a lasting relationship with you and establish a sustainable business. This won’t be my last creation. 

I’m pricing according to value. 

The average person should be able to make (or save) 10X their investment within the 1st month, but certainly within the year. 

So if I had a $49 – $197 product you’d easily make (or save) $500 to $2,000 in a month, but certainly in a year. 

Besides the money, you’ll also be saving tons of time and energy. 

Just implementing my instructions on getting started could save you hundreds of dollars.
