With a chicken families have eggs to eat and sell, add a cockerel and they can also rear chicks. These can be sold at market to the local community making a significant income for the family, to improve their home, pay for schooling or buy vital medicine. Even their droppings can help fertilise the garden and improve crops.

Together this pair offer multiple benefits for families. They provide food and give them the basis for their own small business, helping families work out of poverty.

This gift comes with two info cards, one for each animal, and one greeting card of your choice for your loved one.

As a young child I supplemented our family income by breeding rabbits and chicks and growing veg, so I know the value of Send a Cow’s work.

When they find food, cockerels will call to hens with a "took, took, took". We give this gift in Burundi, Ethiopia, Kenya, Lesotho, Rwanda and Uganda..
