What comes first – the chicken or the egg?
In the case of The Garden of Giving, it would be the chicken.
The Garden, located in McMichaels, is pecking away at helping feed Monroe County's less fortunate with some fresh protein. Tammy Graeber, founder and director of the nonprofit organization, happily greeted 40 white Leghorn chickens to the Garden of Giving last Friday.
She welcomed Steve Hughes, an ag educator for Monroe County's Penn St. Cooperative Extension, as he delivered the chickens. They will lay about 30 eggs a day, producing about 15-16 dozen eggs a week.
