Help us set-up a backyard chicken coop, so that we can share eggs with our family, friends and community.
We are raising funds for a backyard chicken project.
Our goal is to raise five hens and share CLEAN and SAFE home-grown eggs with our family, friends and community.
We are converting a large, old dog house into a chicken coop. We are re-using wooden pallets as lumber for the frame, but there is much left to be done. We need to purchase additional lumber for the roof and repairs, galvanized steel hardware and locks (to keep out the critters!), chicken wire, bedding, feed/water dishes, heat lamps, grain, and other necessities--oh, and chickens!
The coop will be elevated, and surrounded by a chicken wire and wood frame. The coop will be located in a grassy, wooded area, with many berries, plants and bugs. The chickens will inhabit a lush, grassy slope, with plenty of shade from tall sugarberry trees. They will be able to roam freely each evening.
We hope to raise 5 hens. All excess eggs will be shared with neighbors in our low-income, suburban neighborhood and with our local food bank (where I work). Eggs shared with the food bank are used in freshly prepared meals delivered to partner programs to feed homeless and impoverished individuals.
Thank you for considering our project. <3
