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.”
