Chicken farm!

The plumbing has been installed, the feed purchased, wood shavings laid....and today, the first chickens were introduced to their new home at the Minnesota Chicken Farm at Casa Shalom! The 50 yellow chicks are the first to inhabit the farm that was built this summer by the team from LifeChurch in Minnesota. The chicken farm will be a huge blessing to Casa Shalom, as raising our own chickens will allow us to save over $600.00 per month! Check out the photos of the new chicks!

Edgar and Clemente are among the teens who will be responsible for running the chicken farm. This will allow them to master a skill that they can use after the leave Casa Shalom as adults.
