Eggs Have Arrived in Amatongas

We now have 100 laying hens. It took months of research investigating why we couldn't buy laying hens in Mozambique. I finally found out that the huge chicken and egg company in Mozambique has a monopoly and though they sell millions of eggs, they don't sell the hens at point of lay. So, thankfully we have our own Br. Fabian from Zimbabwe who was able to contact people from his country and with a little effort we bought and imported from his country the hens at point of lay.
The hens will lay eggs for about a year and a half and we are presently collecting about 50 eggs a day, enough to feed our boys and sell the rest from our little general store.

And in our random pic from the day below, we have vendors coming by the school everyday to sell to our students and teachers. Bananas and fried bread are popular items.
