In my villages, poor families have 5-15 country chicken. children know that when family come visiting, you have to prepare a chicken dish, and when you suddenly need some money, a few chicken can be sold off. but twice or thrice a year there are these epidemics and many chicken die. yes, they know that there are some veterinarians, both government and private. but who will come to treat 15 chicken? and then they charge too much too. so class 6, 7 and 8 kids were asked, why don't you immunize the chicken yourself? they are incredulous "we are only small chicken", they explained. "how can we do this?" and then one child said - why not? that was the begining in 8 villages, about 200 adolescents learnt how to immunize chicken.
