Chickens are seen as humble creatures however their contribution historically and now is significant. For those in extreme poverty, chickens change families in need to empowering families with choices of food and creating a community small business for income. Recently, the Baptist World Aid shared that in some countries “women do not have a lot of access or control….. cows and goats are controlled by men. But with a chicken, a woman doesn’t need to ask permission…Some of the chickens and eggs are eaten and the family benefit from selling the surplus”. Chickens empower a woman and improve a family’s income. Having a family income gives dignity, puts money into local businesses and transforms poor communities in the developing world. Chickens change lives in many ways.
