Hey BYC Community, I'd like to introduce myself and my group-- I'm a teacher at a small boarding school in Massachusetts, and as part of our service learning project, 14 students and I are getting chickens! We hope to teach some good lessons through raising chickens as well as important technical skills. We're going to be using the eggs to raise awareness about how much healthier free-range chicken eggs are in comparison to eggs in the grocery store, and any eggs that we don't use or sell will be donated to our local food pantry for those who cannot afford to eat organic. Take a look at the blog we just started-- a work in progress, but I'm hoping to have 1-2 student blogs a week. I look forward to getting advice from y'all about raising chickens since all of us are newbies!
