Thanks to his Drumm Farm egg business, a boy with Asperger’s comes out of his shell

Kody Saak rules a chicken coop at the Drumm Farm Center for Children in Independence. Its 158 chickens produce about 400 eggs a week. The 10-year-old boy tends the chickens and prepares the eggs for market. The result has surprised everyone. Kody not only has launched his own egg business, he has developed social skills that previously eluded him.
