Former School bus to be a rolling chicken coop for pastured eggs
This rolling coop will be as self contained as possible and will allow about 250 - 300 egg laying hens to live comfortably and because of their pastured lifestyle will result in the highest quality eggs available.
Susan and I at GrowingDirt.com hope to use the coop as a learning experience for children, we have an elementary school next to the farm and we would like to extend it to other schools wanting a class trip to the farm to learn about farming. This will fully complete the circle... once the bus took kids to school and now it provides a new learning experience for kids in NJ that may never have seen a farm or a chicken.
We want to give a heart felt thank you to the Lecke Bus company and My Uncle Jules for helping make this idea become a reality.
Susan & Jeff,
