One of Nap Town Chickens’ goals is to put a chicken coop at every school, community center, rehabilitation center, retirement home, firehouse… pretty much any place that wants one. Sounds ridiculous, I know, but in early 2012, I contacted a local business and then an elementary school and they both said yes. “Project Poultry” was born. Since then, with the help of numerous businesses and schools, we’ve been able to outfit 27 schools and non-profits in Indianapolis, Louisville and Chicago with chicken coops. Students, teachers, parents and the community were learning about where eggs come from, animal husbandry, the laying life of a hen and best of all… using chickens as an alternative form of composting.
And, it’s very possible that we can get you the coop and hens free of charge by way of a local business funding the project. Special thanks to all those that have made this possible:
