2 Chickens and a Cock

This idea came about after I had several requests from farmers to help them find other options to generate income in their non harvesting seasons.  What I found is chicken is available almost everywhere and an acceptable source of food. Further, maintenance and feed is rather easy.  I decided in the spirit of helping thy neighbor and making communities accountable to select a handful of families and give them each 2 chickens and 1 cock. When the chickens lay eggs, each family then donates two chicken and 1 cock to their neighbor. The project is expected to provide food, and income if eggs and/or chickens are sold. Overall it is agribusiness in its simplest form.Image

This project is good for the environment as chicken eat insects that can be bothersome to humans.

This project is on course to be backed by Mwanamke Afrika, LLC  starting this September 2012 in Ouagadougou.

Feel free to contact me if you like this idea and would like it to start up in your community. It is a simple model that can be replicated. We are looking to expand.
