The Midlands Children's Hope Centre (MCHC) has taken delivery of another 600 day-old chicks to be housed in the second enclosure of the newly built chicken runs. The original batch of 500 chicks, now at three weeks old, are growing well and will be ready for sale in around four weeks’ time. Question Ndou, the Managing Director of MCHC, has already begun marketing the sale of the chicks to local businesses and within the community. ‘The response has been very positive so far’, he said.
The chicken project has been made possible by the support and donations given by members of the Midlands Children's Hope Project. You can visit the Project’s website for more information.
