Chatham’s Cherished Chickens’ New Home – Chatham Primary School
Chatham Primary School has a cherished flock of chickens and our students take pride in caring for them, learning valuable lessons of where eggs come from, respect for animals, and the cycle of food scraps-manure-garden fertiliser.
Our chicken coop is many years old and falling into disrepair. This grant will help us make a new home for our chickens, to allow them to prosper safe from predators including foxes for many years to come.
The major costs associated with the project are
New coop - $1005 Levelling of ground - $140 Installation of coop with trench and fox proof fencing below ground level - $204
The $1,000 grant will be used
