The purpose of this project is to explore the sustainability of raising laying hens in my backyard. For the last several years we have raised laying hens in a moveable A-frame. Through this project I want to improve on housing – making it habitable for four seasons and easier to move. I also want to demonstrate that even my 9 year old sister is able to manage this enterprise, giving her this learning experience as well. Then we want to share this experience and show how it is healthful, profitable, and environmentally friendly.
