Novo Galinhas de Ovos

150 new laying hens arrived in Amatongas after a very long journey thanks to the students, teachers and others at St. Stanislaus High School in Bay St. Louis, MS. Please read the article here about the efforts of the SSC family and their sacrifices to help us in Amatongas. We can't thank everyone at SSC enough for all your efforts. You truly are the "School of Character".

The new Layers are purchased at "point of lay", 18 weeks old when they begin laying eggs. They must be purchased in Zimbabwe because there's no way of getting them in Mozambique. The eggs will be used to feed our 108 boarding students and any left overs will be sold to the local people.
