    Hello,
    My name is Zoey,
    and I got to school in Hinckley, I am a boarding student, meaning I live here at school, and a couple years ago they had chickens on campus, sadly the kids from those years did not treat them very nicely. I love chickens so much, last year my picture was in the yearbook, for being 'one with chickens'. I was so proud to have this title I have talk to so student about getting chickens again, and I have talked to some teacher, and they think its a get idea. I would love help from anyone, with just advise about how to actually go through with this plan. like we may need to sale the idea to a few people, but I'm hopping to get them on board soon.

    any ideas and thought I would love to hear!!!!
    thank you-

    How will you keep the other students from harassing the chickens this year?

    I am hopping to get fencing, and get a lock and have rules around you and go it, and when you can and I am even see if it could be a supervised thing.

    What would you do with the eggs? Would the school kitchen be willing to use them?

    yes as well as the campus students, we have a very nice kitchen, also I have thought about getting meat birds, because we don't have chicken much because of the cost.

    Now that would be good. You could work on getting your economics or business professor to add it as a class project. Calculating the cost vs the profit of a small business, using the chickens for real world experience.

    So you have an accounting class? At minimum your math teacher might be interested.
