May 2012 – Chicken project in El Chilar

The chicken project in El Chilar has changed considerably since it’s beginning 15 months ago. It is now a combination of egg supply, raising baby chicks to grow and sell, and provide meat for the kids snack program at the school.

The food source for the chickens has gone from totally purchased chicken feed to corn donated by the families and green “stuff” that grows all over.

The last count is…..32 live chickens, and 11 eggs waiting to hatch
