Poultry Project Update

We are eight months into Positive Planet's Poultry Project and everyday we are learning more. Our goal is to create a sustainable and profitable business to support a school lunch program for over 800 students. We have faced many challenges, from water shortages due to draught, to poor quality of feed. With the support of Jonathan Blanchard, a Peace Corp volunteer working with Positive Planet and Egg Module (www.eggmodule.org), we are now able to monitor production on an almost daily basis. This is allowing us to respond quickly as conditions in the field change. Our most recent partner, Professor Jacquie Jacob, of the University of Kentucky, is providing much needed expertise in poultry science which is already showing results.
