Chicks for a family
Heifer Project International Inc
Each egg that a chicken lays is a lifesaving gift for a hungry child. Now just imagine what your gift of a flock of Heifer chicks and training in their care will mean to struggling families around the world.
Fully grown, a single hen can lay more than 200 eggs per year. So your starter flock of 10 to 50 chicks will provide plenty of protein-rich eggs to eat, to sell at the market for income, or to pass on the gift to other families in need. And because chickends need very little space and thrive on readily available feed or pests like insects, chicks are the perfect way to help many of the families living in the most extreme poverty.
