This Friday meet Nguyen Huynh and his son, Dennis, of Bowden, Georgia. The Huynhs are first generation Americans from Vietnam. Nguyen raised chickens before leaving his homeland for California, where he worked in construction. Because of high living costs and an unstable income, he began feeling an urge to raise chickens again. With support from the family, they helped him do just that.
“We were living in Garden Grove near Los Angeles, and a family friend was moving to Georgia to get into the poultry business,” said Dennis. The friend had purchased a poultry farm, so in 2015, the Huynhs seized the opportunity, packed their bags, and moved with him.
