I didn't see this posted elsewhere on BYC, and it's a very nice story.
A 9 year old Colorado girls mother was in a nursing home, father had trouble making ends meet. She borrowed money from her grandmother and went into egg farming; her business earns $15k per year and it kept the family in their home through the rough times. She's now 13 and has 135 chickens.
