Hello from Casa Hogar Elim orphanage Nuevo Laredo Mexico

My name is Anita and my husband and i moved to the orphanage in December 2017. We opened a learning center and took in raising chickens, a small vegetable farm and a tilapia farm. First time at all of that :)

Chickens. We had 40 and we had them within the first year laying about 20 eggs a day. Then we got surprised with 40 chicks. No space for that many chickens :(. Overcrowding made for unhappy chickens and weakened health and we have lost about half the flock. If the remainder 1/2 are 6+ years and the rest are about a year old we are getting only about 5 eggs a day.

we are building out a new pen area and will stick it with all new chicks in the next few months.
