A New Pecking Order at Bright Hope School

The laying hens have arrived! Five hundred total. As opposed to chicks, more mature (several months old) hens were purchased for Ethiopia's Bright Hope School to help increase survivability during transport to their new home. It is expected that the chickens will start producing eggs by late September or early October. Laying cages along with the watering system have been installed in the egg laying room of the hatchery.
