Chickens are great companions and looking after them is a great opportunity to connect with the animal world.
There has been interesting research that has shown the many health benefits of spending your time caring for chickens!
The chickens at ‘Our Backyard’ have many jobs. They are happy to devour our kitchen scraps and veggies, they also eat bugs and worms, seeds and nuts, grass and wait for it…weeds!
Our chickens also supply eggs for use in our cooking program.
In our hen house, we also have Ronnie the Rooster who is a Bantom Rooster and is the ‘king of the girls".
By sponsoring our Chickens, you will help us feed and provide a warm and safe home for them.
