The girls just love their new hens and cockerel. Roy and Jenny have been able to make a hen coop and everyone wanted to say a big, big thankyou for all of the donations we sent they thank you for saving your pennies and for bringing so much joy to everyone here in Rupaidiha.

Great news.....the Coop and Chickens have arrived at the AOG School

As you can see from these photographs the coop and chickens are very happy and established at the A.G.C School in India. The children really enjoy taking care of them especially collecting the fresh eggs they lay! These were purchased with the money we raised from the Harvest Appeal in Oct 2013.  It took them a while to have the coop built and they raised some money to finish the coop. The chickens have been named from the 20 names which were drawn from the competition entries sent by Goldfield. Please scroll down to see more including the names we suggested.

It was wonderful to welcome Roy and Jenny Ramble back to Goldfield and here all their news about the chickens. Roy and Jenny only have a few chickens. The chickens need somewhere really safe to live because there are snakes in the area. Hopefully they will be able to raise enough money to build a secure coop very soon. If you would like to find out more about their visit please click Roy & Jenny Assembly

If you would like to support our Global Havest Chicken and Coop Challenge simply colour in the chicken picture (see the pdf doucment above) as neatly as you can and think of a name for a Chicken. Please attach your donation to the picture and return your entry to school by 9.00 am on Friday 25th October 2013. All entries will be placed in a lucky dip and the winners will be pulled out. The winning sheets will officially name the chickens and all of the pictures will be sent to the AOG School for the children to look at and enjoy.

We hope this project will enable us to continue our strong links with the children at the AOG School and we can all enjoy a fantastic learning experience with photographs, news and updates of our chickens and water buffalo!
