Abdul Rohman Dolo has 3 children, aged 5 to 10. He is a member of Kampong Natkudum Club. The Pulohpuyo SAO encouraged the club to raise 100 chickens. Each day, two out of 40 members of the club take turn feeding the chickens and collecting eggs. The eggs are sold to the group members and neighbors who order the eggs online (Line application). A pack of chicken eggs of assorted sizes is sold at 80 THB.
This activity teaches me how to raise chickens, give them food and water, manage the light system of the farm, and care for sick chickens. Raising chickens brings incomes to the community. Everyone helped build the chicken house. Children cut the grass. Adults made wooden stalls. Villagers brought snacks and water to help out. It united us. I am proud to have built the first community’s chicken farm. Now, we have learned that chickens are easy to raise, and chicken droppings don’t stink because we use rice husks to absorb the odor. My children and the other members’ children can spend their free time productively by feeding chickens and collecting eggs instead of playing games or playing on the phones.”
