A cockerel is a fantastic gift for a family with a hen! With their help, hens can provide farmers with baby chicks as well as eggs. The chicks can be bred and sold into the community to provide a significant source of income. Even the bird’s droppings can be used to make a great compost for the farmer’s crops.

A cockerel and hens provide multiple benefits for families. They provide food and give them the basis for their own small business, helping families work out of poverty.

When you buy a gift from Send a Cow you're making a donation to help African farmers become self-reliant. Your gift is spent on our livestock and training programmes, across all the countries we work in.
