Pair of Egg Laying Chickens

Gives 2 chickens
Gift Description:
$15 provides a family with a pair of egg-laying chickens. Chickens are a wonderful gift of vitamin-rich food for a hungry family, as one laying hen can produce up to 200 eggs a year. The sale of extra eggs also provides money for the family's needs. Tending chickens is one of few opportunities for many to save and invest in rural developing countries. What is not consumed can be sold at market for a profit. Chickens also provide pest control and fertilizer for vegetable gardens. The amount of land needed to raise chickens is relatively small compared to other livestock, and they can survive on agricultural and household waste.
