Here chick, chick, chick….

June 8, 2013

As part of Testigo’s permaculture project chickens were transported from Arusha to Longido and Kimokouwa for the Masai participants.  Old Red was used to transport the chickens the 77kms from Arusha to Longido.  It was an eventful trip for La Chica, with some of the chickens flapping around inside the car en route.  On the arrival at Longido and Kimokouwa the Masai helped to transport the chickens to the chicken coops.  La Chica’s demonstration plot chicken coop also housed many of the chickens.  La Chica was thrilled that one chicken was old enough to lay an egg – the only one so far!
