Hello members of the backyard chicken community!


My name is Una Smithsimon, and I'm currently working on my 8th grade science fair project. My question is "How will the amount of lead in soil affect the amount of lead in backyard chicken eggs?" I am going to use test results of lead levels in soil in backyards and in chicken eggs from chickens that live in those backyards, and will be doing several tests of soil and eggs in the lab at Brooklyn College.


If you have already tested both your soil and your eggs, and don't mind me using your results in my project, please email me. If you have had either your eggs or soil tested and want to have the other test done too that would be very helpful so please email me about that as well: [address removed]. 


Thanks so much!
