Warrior chicken! Juma's uncle has been trying to breed chickens, hoping to add eggs to the family's meals. Last year, he bartered 3 chickens against 1 sheep. But at 14.000 feet (4250 m), he hasn't been successful. Two of them died from the extreme cold, and the surviving one lost one of his legs to frostbite - but still flying high.
