Six Egg Laying Chickens

Gives 6 chickens
Gift Description:
$19 purchases six laying chickens to help feed a family and provide an extra source of income. Tending chickens is one of few opportunities for many to save and invest in rural developing countries. One laying hen can produce up to 200 eggs a year, providing families with a protein-rich diet. 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.
