Teen Suicide Prevention: Chicken Project Update

Spread the Word!

We are now chicken farmers. Two of our supporters from Colorado Roger and Mark came to Wanblee and constructed a chicken coop. We picked up 40 chicks in Martin on May 7. Road Island Reds. Dennis and I fixed the coop with the tubs , heat lights, wood chips, chick starter , and water things. Also Jerome and his two grandsons came over to put up locks and extension cords for the heat lights. A true collaboration of people to get this project moving.  We thank all who contributed and who helped in the chicken project.  We are planning to use these chickens in suicide prevention. By giving pre-teens and teens something to love and care for – gives these children hope and thus preventing suicide.
