CAN YOU FEED hens anything, or does it matter what you feed them ?
That’s what Conor Daly from Colaiste Mhuire in Askeaton – owner of 10 hens himself – wanted to find out.
His interest in science projects developed last year, and he is one of the hundreds of students taking part in the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition this year.
At his stand he had a calliper for measuring the eggs, as well as a measuring scales. Here, he explained what type of foods he tried out as part of his project, and why it matters what you feed hens.
