OUR NEW CHICKEN COOP AND CONCRETE FISH POND AND THE BIG PARTY

The entire village turned out early Saturday morning.  Before sundown they would build a strong chicken coop of local bamboo, and a large concrete pond to raise fish for eating. Sunday was the big party.  After educational games at the learning tree, they would have contests and races and music to celebrate the official start of Project Protein

Our foreign friends can't do volunteer work, but they can watch and measure our progress.
This Couple rapidly cut and shaped 
the bamboo for the chicken coop



Each piece has to fit perfectly into the design.

Thin slats mesh with strong
beams and crossbars.

The coop is ready for the 30 waiting chickens.
