Consider starting your own neighborhood egg co-op. Each member in your group gets an “egg share allowance” from your coop per week. Great for friends, neighbors, churches, schools, and even fundraisers for your charity. Most people that have chickens enjoy the eggs (who doesn’t!) but lets look at what YOU can do to help your entire neighborhood.
Think about food pantries, homeless shelters, maybe even halfway houses that can always use extra food to share with the people inside the walls that depend on them for the next meal….
We have all heard…..the quote “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” Proverb quotes
What about chickens and eggs? That’s right. Ask your friends to pitch in with labor or supplies on a “community coop” your DREAM coop to be kept in your yard or perhaps the back of a church or food pantry. (be sure to check the regulations and zoning permits in your area)
Be sure to follow us at Blue Star Ranch for more details on raising chickens for your community. I PERSONALLY will donate my time via telephone to help anyone with this project. Raising chickens is my passion. Somehow, I just want to pass along my joy to others.
